Our First Signs of Spring

 
 
Spring usually happens later here on the eastern end of Long Island. Later than the western end of the island. This, I believe is because the western portion is closer to the equator. Just my theory. The east end enjoys slightly less snow in winter do to the Gulf stream, go figure.
I came home from food shopping and say these little flowers. My wife and I don't remember planting anything there. They first appeared last year. Spring is right around the corner.

Oh! I just love those! I need to find out what they are called. My White Garden needs them.

really????

i've not seen anything like that yet here. although, i would not be surprised if we do see it over the next couple of days. it's supposed to be near 50 on monday!

what are those flowers? i must get some, as i need spring to appear earlier and earlier for me the older i get. i always see crocuses first before anything. sometimes even when there is still snow on the ground.

Snowdrops, harbingers of spring. They are such a welcome flower. Ours were covered in snow yesterday.
