Snowdrops for Mosaic Monday

Hello Everyone, I cannot believe another week has passed. What a week it has been, it seemed I was jumping from the frying pan to the fire and back again all week.  Thank goodness it is over. Next week will be so exciting as I will be visiting Canada Blooms, a large garden show in Toronto, for 4 days this week. I will take lots of pictures to show you.

The snow is melting away and the first flowers have made an appearance in the garden. It has been a long winter and these snowdrops are such a welcome sight.


I am sure we will get more snow before spring settles in for good.
In the meantime I will enjoy the flowers as they make an appearance.

I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful week!!

Pierwsze wiosenne kwiaty we własnym ogrodzie, to wielka radosć i nadzieja, że za chwilę będą inne i że niedługo będzie kolorowo. Pozdrawiam

Beautiful mosaic indeed. I have one fresh bouquet in my house. Daffodils. I am saying goodbye to my indoor silk flowers for the season. Love the snowdrops.

Love your snowdrop pics! I was happy to see some blooming in our garden even though we still have lots of snow on most of the garden,it was a cheery reminder that spring is coming!
I look forward to seeing your pics of Canada Blooms- I have never gone but I used to enjoy Kathy Renweld and Mark Cullen's coverage of it.I used to love The Gardener's Journal too.

Though they look dainty, these must be rather hardy flowers. They bring a smile to my face which is remarkable since I just came via Four Paws and Whiskers with its link to the devastation in Japan. Have fun at the flower show!

Hi there this is my first time joining in with Monday Mosaic and I am now hopping around from Italy viewing all the wonderful blogs that join in. No snowdrops here so these are a delight to see.

Good morning Jen. What a pretty mosaic. They are such delicate white blooms. It is wonderful to see something growing again isn't it? Just the beginnings of what is to come.

Teagarden said...

It is all over the world the same: people look like children when they see the first snowdrops. Isn`t it nice how we share it?
Best wishes,
Markus

Genie said...

Your mosaic is just tooooo pretty. I love those snowdrops. My daffs are up and the crocuses are popping their heads out so I know spring must be just around the corner....and I can’t wait. Winter was just too long this year. HMM to you.

Lesley said...

What a beautiful spring mosaic, your snowdrops are gorgeous!

LDH said...

Such a pretty little flower! I have never had snowdrops in the garden but think I should change that. Lovely mosaic!

Georgianna said...

So precious these are, Jen! I wish like anything I had an abundance of them but most have not returned this year. Well, none except one! Next fall I must plant tons.

Wishing you a lovely week! xo – g
