Well it is pretty - as is snow - but - glad we have been spared this winter. We had enough last one!!!!

A beautiful thought, at once simple and profound! The very essence for me of Haiku. Thank you, Juliet.

Very good Juliet - I was all ready to read about one of my favourite flowers!

I've heard that they've seen snowdrops in Kew, but the only ones around us are the ones hanging off the trees . . . as in this haiku.

I've met so many bloggers who are 43. Do you suppose it is the median blogging age, or perhaps we just naturally find our "own" folk.

Snowdrops everywhere this year, yet going by my haiku in Spring 1995 they were rather scarce.

This one 'popped' up in my mother's garden, and she lives just off the Bristol Downs.

Thank goodness it's different case now. ;-)

Delightful 'ku ... I've never considered 'snowdrops' before but then I don't live where snow falls. Thanks for stretching my mind ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
