Snowdrops emerging

Snowdrops emerging

At Last.
Today the first snowdrops bloomed. I was so happy to see them.

I went outdoors initially because Consumers Energy was cutting some trees down under the electric lines. I had them leave the chopped up wood. I have enough for wood mulch for years, but I have plans — mulch walk ways through the woods and a large vegetable garden. Need a fence, though, to keep out the deer before I plant.

It was warm so I stayed outside and picked up broken tree limbs from the garden and cut down the dried remains of last year’s perennials. That’s when I noticed the snowdrops. I planted more than show, hope they all come up.

It will take another few days to finish cleaning up my garden area and not all the snow piles have melted.

Warm won’t last — next couple of days will turn cold again. Still, it was a beautiful day: sunny, very windy and I didn’t need a jacket. Heard (besides wind blowing) five Canadian geese overhead and a crane.
