Snowdrops and daffodils

I haven't seen any daffodils up in the mountains yet, but I'm sure they're open in the Piedmont (my garden blogger friends are reporting them, and they looked ready to pop in our garden). Hooray!  Spring is coming.

Here in the mountains, snowdrops (Galanthus spp) are brightening the landscape.

One of the first old houses in our mountain neighborhood (probably pre-dating the "development" of Montford) has carpets of snowdrops under trees, poking out into the lawn, and lining the road.


This is a Wikipedia image (no camera was along for our walk this afternoon)!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
