Earliest ever

Sat. 24th Dec 2011
            Just a very brief look around my garden revealed the first snowdrops beginning to open, this is very early in our part of the country up here in Lancashire. Last year which was much colder the first snowdrops didn't open until the 26th Jan. a full month later

       Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year


  1. Astonishing. Mine are poking up here but not in flower. Merry Christmas to you too.

  2. How lovely to have snowdrops for Christmas. Perfectly beautiful. Merry Christmas David. Thanks for following my blog and all your kind comments this year.

  3. Now that is early. Even in the warmer (SE) there is not sign of these little beauties.

    Queen bees often come out of hibernation during the winter months in this part of the country. This is the main reason I have made the garden one for all seasons. Wildlife often need a helping hand don't you think??
