snowdrops (6 weeks early)

oh, 
little ones...
i worry
that 
you are
too
early  and 
confused 
in your 
optimism.
"hope".
that is 
your message.
dare we?

  2. Lovely buds. My sister, too, is watching her flowers pop up and worrying that they are too early. But how beautiful to have a glimpse of spring, while still in the midst of winter.

  3. The sap buckets and tubing were put up at the farm across the street about 2 weeks ago. This makes me excited about spring and so concerned about our environment. Today was another 50 degree day in February in MA.

  4. Lovely post. Our bulbs are coming up, too. I did see snowdrops blooming on a recent walk at an arboretum. And witch hazel. But now there's snow.

    I've missed so many of your posts and it's been fun to catch up. I love the photo in your other post of the Christmas cactus on the green chair. Such gorgeous colors.

    You're always up to such wonderful stuff!
