They are here! When we see the first signs of snowdrops we can’t help but smile.  These brave little flowers push up through the ground into snow and wind and rain and really let us know that everything is waking up and before too long they will be followed by other blooms.

I drove into Camelford this morning and saw some early flowering daffodils which looked stunning – but they don’t do it for me in the same way as the Snowdrop.  On the  next two weekends Pencarrow House has it’s Snowdrop Days where you can walk through drifts of these elegant, graceful little gems.   They usually sell the plants in the shop so I might well buy some more to add to our collection!  You  can never have too many Snowdrops.

I had to do a quick watercolour of my favourite flower!
