16/02 spring is coming when … … the first snowdrops flower … … laundry can dry outside in the breeze … … rhubarb peeps up through the soil … … cabbage tops are ready to be harvested for supper … It’s been a long winter – roll on spring!
Oh I think you’re a bit ahead of us. My snowdrops are up but not yet ready to bloom and no sight of rhubarb yet. But I have been hanging the wash a bit. Hurry up spring!
All of that after snow much recent snow?! That is promising!
It’s in the air, isn’t it?
Oh no. That means autumn is on the way here! Shame 😉
Your photos are lovely. You must be very much looking forward to spring. Such a pretty time of year!
What a lovely time of year. I was sure we were in Summer down here in oz, but a week of rain is trying to convince me otherwise.
I love snowdrops. They are delightful.
So my rhubarb might just be dying off for the year then, and not permanently? This is my first year – will it come back in spring?
wonderfull photos, love snowdrops… and i adore your laundery and the pegs too
Things change fast – it wasn’t so long ago you were reporting record breaking snowfall. Our snowdrops are popping up simultaneously with yours – regardless of the vast distance between here and there.
You are way ahead of us here, although it’s been lovely and sunny for the past few days. Your pictures today are beautiful, and encouragingly springy!
Oh, and I nominated you for an award on my blog today; come check it out!
We’ve a good month before spring even starts to think about arriving. Love your preview!
spring looks beautiful on your side of the world – enjoy!
Oh I’m jealous of your snowdrops, mine aren’t flowering yet!
The last of our snow went yesterday- I shall go looking for the rhubarb today. The snowdrops definately aren’t here yet. I think I still have a wait for spring!
what pretty snowdrops! I remember when I first got to London a year ago, all the crocuses were just coming up around where i live. I’ll have to go out today and see if they’re poking their heads out yet!
Oh yes, snowdrops! Me and my little one have spent the last 2 weeks looking at the tips of trees and shoots in the ground, saying “nearly, nearly” and yesterday we saw leaves (tiny, green, baby ones) and crocuses!
Hi, I followed the link from PDXKnitterati over here, and I’ve been enjoying all your lovely photos! I especially like the laundry hanging in the breeze. It makes me wish for a warm spring day that I can spend outside in the sun.
I am so jealous of your snowdrops! Gorgeous pictures – enjoy the coming spring!
Yea for Spring!! Nothing beats drying clothes outside.
Hooray for signs of spring!
Lucky you. We’ve got at least another month here. At least my skiing/snowboarding isn’t all over yet!
I wish I had those beautiful signs of spring, instead I am looking at yet another snowfall. It would normally be the kind of snowfall that you look lovingly out at and sigh as you sip your tea. That being said it’s almost March and I am tired of snow so I’m trying to enjoy it but it’s hard.
I’m so ready to see signs of spring but here in Canada in my Zone we won’t see flowers popping up until April/May.
