Flash Blog: Spring

Spring is touted as a season representing rebirth, the reinvigoration of our surroundings and our lives.  As I write this, though, spring feels so very far away – completely out of reach.

I suppose it is therefore time to be inspired by the snowdrop – a resilient little flower which can bloom even when the ground is still covered in snow, bringing a touch of spring with it.

  1. Oh, I'm sorry you don't live where I do, Aria. In northern California it's been cool and foggy in the morning, warming to 70+ degrees and bright sunshine every afternoon this week. I wish I could mail you some!

    1. The Silicon Valley is experiencing lovely weather right now, isn't it? Lucky you get to enjoy it :-)

  2. I know what you mean. The spring seems to be so far away with all the snow and cold. But if I remember correctly, it will come. Eventually.

  3. Oh, I was hoping someone would have a picture of a snowdrop! We don't get them here (or at least, I haven't seen them except in gardens), but they are one of my favourites.

    1. We don't get them here, either actually, but I've loved the idea of a resilient and strong flower pushing through the snow since I was a child.
