The snow pulled back near the east side of the entrance wall. A few galanthus immediately showed the spring in their step. They arose in bud and then bloomed tall the minute the sun shone upon them. I left for work in the gloom of the early morning. The clouds left in the afternoon. When I returned home from work they greeted me. They had been hiding under their white blanket all along!

The thought of sowing seed brings to mind the flowering of a volunteer in my pots of Narcissus bulbocodium. It is much more robust than the tiny narcissus and several inches taller. These pots of narcissus had been sown over many years - repotted so there is not telling when it arrived with them. The color is most welcome.
