Hi 36°F Lo 31°F

Once again, the Farmer's Almanac got it right...  Yesterday it was rainy, cold and it snowed! What flowers that I did have in bloom were droopy, wet and wouldn't have looked very attractive in a photo.  

As a tribute to the Almanac and to participate in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, I am posting photos of Snowdrops 'Galanthus sp' (seems appropriate) that I took a few weeks ago! 

To see a larger display of blooming flowers visit  May Dreams Gardens.


  1. Your Snowdrops are glorious! :)

  2. Wow, it really is cold and snowy there. Next month your photos will be glorious meanwhile the snowdrops are pretty.

  3. Wee! Snowdrops everywhere! Hardy and reliable. Happy GBBD!

  4. I most like your bee. So nice of her to pose on the snowdrops. Great photo. Happy GBBD.

  5. What a wonderful colony of snowdrops! They're so beautiful. I just added a few last year, and am looking forward the blooms, and to future years as they spread.

  6. Love the snowdrops. How long have you had them?

  7. Thank you. Lovely snowdrops. I should plant some in my yard. I have daffodills, crocus, lily of the valley and bleeding heart. I also have tulips in bright red, but no blooms and I can't figure out why.
    I've done some more posts http://diadesigns1.blogspot.com/ please stop in and enjoy. I would be honored if you would become a follower, I love your blog.

    Take care, Dia*

  8. Just checking in on you and your life. Yep, the Farmer's Almanac is awesome. I love it and my friend based the date of her October wedding in Maine on the Almanac's predictions. In a rainy fall that was the only sunny day.

    All joys to you,

  9. Happy GGBD! Your snow drops are so lovely! I love your countdown to spring too, I just got really excited :)

  10. So great to see the bee enjoying your early snowdrops. Clearly you're not the only one enjoying them this time of year! Happy Bloomday!

  11. So beautiful! I miss snowdrops. Don't see them much over here.

  12. A bee on snowdrops??? That's one really early girl you had there. Isn't it great to see flowers!!

  13. They always get it right!! I buy my daughter the Farmer's Almanac every year for either Christmas or her birthday. She loves to read it!
    I love the snowdrops!
