Snowdrops







Last year, March 6 to be exact, I posted photos of these flowers for the first time. I didn't know what they were. Lynne, a fellow blogger identified them as Snowdrops for me. Two years ago they just seemed to pop-up out of no where. This year I found them in another spot in the year.
What's weird about the whole thing is that we built this house and had to clear the lot. Our town has free garden mulch for the taking, I've been getting this free mulch ever since we lived here. This is where the bulbs must of come from.
Today's post are two different views after the rain this morning. Today started with heavy rain and ended with sunshine. I'm looking forward to spring.

They're so pretty. Spring's very first flowers. I know a few folks who have them in their yards. Pretty shots.

So that's what you call them. I took a picture of them a few days ago and had no idea. Someone else referred to them as snowdrops, so I guess you're my confirmation. Have a good weekend.

They are lovely. The water droplets add a certain magic. :)

I meant to plant some snowdrops last fall but didn't get around to it. My only connection to them comes from my parents' last place. I had never seen them before and haven't seen them since.

The AC is On

That's neat, they actually look like perfectly formed drops of snow.
