"Snowdrops are another herald of the Spring. First, they are sort of pale-green points peeping from the soil; then they split into two fat, uterine leaves and that is that. Then they flower some time at the beginning of February and I tell you, no Palm of Victory or Tree of Knowledge or Laurel of Glory is more beautiful than this little white fragile cup on a pale stalk waving in the rough wind."
Karel Capek (The Gardener's Year)
Here this 2nd January are "pale-green points peeping" from last autumn's planting.
And so it goes - life renews. Without fail. Cheerfully!
Happy Birthday Rob
