Snowdrops have had a starring role in my photographs this week and they've shown themselves off nicely. Our snowdrops grow under the ancient sycmore tree outside the front of the house. It'svery large and pretty rotten at the centre. Theory has it that lightning took off the top branches apart from one. We did a bit of tree pruning last year with the help of a loaned Manitou and our lovely neighbour Stephen and removed the final long branch as it was very rotten and I was worried it would drop onto the school bus - not good for community relations at all. The snowdrops grow happily underneath and are the very first sign of Spring on its way. Here they are with the new pale colours of Heirloom Silk ribbon, all delicate and soft, which must mean Spring is just around the corner.
