Waiting for snowdrops

Many, many snowdrops sproutingUsually I see the first snowdrops in mid- to late January. Usually the rest are flowering by now.  But this year, I guess the lack of snow cover is making them reluctant. The ground has been bare and hard and cold for weeks on end. Even today, after a few inches of wet snow came down, the snowdrop patch is bare again.

But look at all that! When the snowdrops finally flower, there’s going to be lots.
