Signs of Spring

One of the milestone events around our yard in relation to "phenology" is when the Snowdrops flower in our yard.  With the warm days this week, yesterday was the first day they were open.  It's a key sign of the stage of spring for us because this little clump of snowdrops is well away from any buildings underneath a Japanese Maple tree where the conditions are the same from year to year.  It's not the earliest they have flowered, but certainly on track for a fine late winter.  Grizzly
