Gathering Snowdrops

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.
~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858


It is such a beautiful early spring day today. I noticed that my Snowdrops were blooming so I grabbed my basket and went outside.




The snowdrops are so pretty in a vase, So delicate and sweet.






While I was out, I noticed that one of my Buttercups was in bloom, so I cut it and decided to photograph it on my English rabbit's ears. Beau wanted in on the pictures. He's such a ham.


Okay, that's a good pose.





Hope you have a nice beautiful sunny day.

I like the little touch of green on the snowdrop petals; it must be a different variety than mine. I'm tempted to pop outside and pick some before it gets dark. Snow is expected and they'll be invisible tomorrow. Yours are so pretty in the little vase!

Snowdrops are a favourite harbinger of spring and yours look so pretty in a vase with some ribbon.
Beau looks right at home in your garden, he must be your helper.

I love the quote by Henry Beecher. A very pretty post Clara ~~ How lovely to be having a touch of spring today with your pretty snowdrops.
We had snow last night & freezing rain now, so I will not be heading anywhere for the time being. :)
Have a wonderful weekend,
Hugs Rosemary...xx
