Travel Theme: Spring Snowdrops

IMG_0390After a warm weekend last week and then suddenly it went back to the 30s-40s deg. F starting Tuesday, I thought Spring is not going to come.

At least the calendar today is marked as the first day of Spring. However, my attire today belies the season we’re getting into. I wore my down coat, gloves and my knitted hat is in my purse ready on standby just in case it gets too cold downtown.

In fact I was standing by the elevator banks when I realized I forgot my coat on my way out. I had to go back to retrieve it, it is still chilly out.

As I was picking up my car, I noticed these flowers not too far away by the side of a private home. Snowdrops are easy to ignore but because they are clump together in one spot where there used to be old dried leaves from the trees their dainty white flowers caught my attention. What a welcome sight to someone who’s eyes are all but tired of the drab colors of Winter.

These sturdy perennials are the first flowers in Spring. They are tiny bulbs that one plants in the Fall and they are best naturalized in one’s garden. By the time the grass is ready to be cut, the flowers will be gone.

Scientific name: Galanthus nivalis

    We have abundance of flowers in Spring, Summer and Fall but you should see Winter – so sad especially when the clouds are gray. In fact you are lucky because your flowers are always in bloom all year long.
