Snowdrops and Sticky Buds

Whilst there is snow lying on the ground and the weather is so cold, it’s almost impossible to believe that Spring is just around the corner.  There are sure signs of the coming new season however, wherever we choose to look.  Yesterday I came across beautiful snowdrops bravely defying the icy conditions, and sticky buds on the horse chestnut tree in the local churchyard.

A few days before that I found aconites and snowdrops peeping through in a shady spot around the roots of a huge old tree in the rectory garden at Glentham.  I’m taking heart from these sightings.  I just need to spot some lambs now – I’ll let you know when I do and then it will officially be Spring in my rural Lincolnshire world.
