snowdrops = spring?

If recent years are anything to judge by I now expect a good dash of snow when my snowdrops arrive. They’ve been out for about a week now and managed to peek through the ice. The snow’s not here yet but I’ve got my boots ready and am looking forward to doing some snow sculptures.

Although it’s a bit chilly, I have the backdoor open for the first time this year and am watching the robin feeding on my patio amongst the starlings, blackbirds, finches and sparrows. 

Is spring here or are we about to fall into a harsh winter mid February.  I’ve no idea but, for now, I’ll enjoy my garden with the snowdrops being the first flowers to show off so far this year.

ps I’m practicing my sketches as I’m in the middle of doing twenty-six for April.. Be patient and I hope I get better..
