Snow drops

As I said in my last post, DS No. 3 and I went geocaching this afternoon, and came across a few patches of snow drops in the woods. They are such delightful little flowers, I just had to pick a few to take home. I put them into a little ventouse, thats a vintage French medical cupping jar. Those little glass things make wonderful little vases or, when turned upside down, little cloches.


I am so ready for some Spring sunshine, soft fresh greens on the trees, and colourful flowers.
