"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Springtime



The tail end of January always seems to be a bit of a nonentity for me. Christmas is over, the new year isn't quite so new any more and winter, short days and long nights seem to be stretching endlessly ahead. Until, that is, you spot these ....
As it's not a very good photo, only snapped on my phone camera, perhaps I need to identify it as the first snowdrops - at least chez Jennyta.
Very uplifting, seeing these frail-looking little blossoms braving the cold. Perhaps Spring is not so far round the corner after all.
Let's hope it's not taking the scenic route!

I've started seeing them over the past week as well, which is always a good sign.
After this winter spring really can't come soon enough! Flighty xx
