Look What I Found!

I was out refilling the bird feeders when I spotted some bits of white out of the corner of my eye. At first, I thought they were little patches of snow, but I found something quite different when I walked over for a closer look.

Possibly the smallest snowdrops I've ever had, and I'm not sure the flowers
 will survive the frigid temperatures and howling winds to ever open, 
but they are snowdrops nonetheless.

These two are barely an inch tall, but they've managed
 to push through the frost-heaved ground to make an appearance.

Our high today is only supposed to be 15°, with lows this weekend of -10° 
along with 20-30 mph winds. I don't know what these intrepid snowdrops 
will look like once temperatures finally warm up, but I am grateful that they've
 braved the winter weather to remind me that spring will indeed be arriving.

Wishing you a happy and warm weekend, along with hopes of spring!


  1. We're experiencing that bitter cold this weekend, too, but then it's going to be in the 40s again by Tuesday so at least it's quick. No snowdrops here yet, just snow.

  2. My very favorite flower! How wonderful to see them. I think ours our still covered with snow, although I need to keep a lookout for them as soon as it starts to melt. Can spring be far?

  3. What a bright spot on a c-c-c-c-c-cold day! Stay warm my friend...if I don't go out for two days it will be fine with me!

  4. well well well!! beautiful! I have been looking on the roadside for ours but there is nothing as of yet (and the snow covered everything again).

  5. Those brave little snowdrops! So fragile and beautiful!

  6. I spied some of those near a tree trunk in my neighborhood last weekend, too!

  7. it's amazing how something so delicate looking can be so strong. stay warm!

  8. I love the most steadfast of the steadfast . . . snowdrops! Thanks for sharing yours.
