|Hello, little snowdrop!|
This is our earliest-ever official Toronto Gardens snowdrop sighting – I noticed my usual earlybird snowdrop was up yesterday, February 3, 2016, but it had likely awoken a few days before. Our neighbours S and B have a nice little patch blooming in their front yard, too.
Prior to this, the earliest we’ve posted on snowdrops has been the end of February 2013 (although, I have seen this baby up once in January, before we started our snowdrop alerts).
That’s what you get with a non-winter. The hellebores are popping their heads above the leaf litter, too. How are the snowdrops (or other spring harbingers) doing where you are?
However they are, and wherever we are, one thing I know for sure: We must plant more! Agreed?
