It's almost impossible to convey my feelings on this.  I took this photo this morning, 19 Feb.  There is no snow on the ground.  That's amazing.  There hasn't been any snow on the ground.  That's unbelievable.  The snow drops are blooming.  That's impossible! 

Just to check my memory, I went back in time to look at photos I'd taken about this time in years past.

 The first snow drop photo was taken March 18th - a full month from now, and there was snow on the ground.

The first snow drop photo was taken March 18th.  The snow was thin, but it covered the ground.

The first snow drop photo was taken on March 12th, through the snow.  It was an early Spring that year.

  1. It's been a very disconcerting winter all round. We're now on to daffodils, and the snowdrops are over. I'm in no rush, but it seems as if nature is.
