First Stirrings [Jan. 29th, 2018|11:13 am]
Tony Grist
 We have snowdrops.

We have that yellow flower whose name I used to know but have now forgotten

We have a crocus. Just the one. 

And out by the front gate we have a yellow primula- a little ragged around the petals but bravely going "up yours" to the time of year.

Yes, that's it. Thank you for jogging my memory.

I'm seeing snowdrops and primroses in people's gardens here, but the woods are still looking as wintry as ever...

Spring is making a slow start this year. Last year at this time we were seeing all sorts.

I love snowdrops. Such hopeful flowers. It has been quite cold for here until now and I think our grape hyacinths will be late this year as I see no sign of them yet.

One of the reasons we love snowdrops is because they look so fragile- and so ill-equipped for venturing out in winter weather.

Good guess, but no. The name I'd forgotten was Winter Aconite.
