It seems like winter just doesn't want to let go this year. Normally, we get a few days in January and February when it is warm enough and dry enough to do some clean up work in the flower beds. Not this year. I shudder to think of how much work is waiting for me outside when it finally warms up.
I took this photo of snowdrops coming up by our pond on January 17th.
I know the leaves and flowers of late winter bloomers are hardy, but I really thought they would be a soggy mess when the snows of the last few weeks finally melted, but I was wrong. This is how they looked this morning. Guess they're called snowdrops for a reason.
