First Snowdrop in full flower!
Well, not quite... this is the aftermath of our walk today...
I did find two snowdrops in full bloom though!
My first reaction was of absolute and utter joy! I got lost for a long while in just how delicate and beautiful it was. The perfect symmetry of the two pure white hoods that protect the internal petal, that has been kissed on the tip with the softest green colour, just makes my heart melt.
My second reaction was 'I can't believe I don't have my camera! I can't believe it! I want to blog this moment! I want all my lovely blogging friends to share in this and see just how beautiful this snowdrop is! I want to sing about how I can feel the energy from the soil building and rising up through my feet and out through my head! I can't believe I don't have my camera! Grumble, grrrr!!"
So I made myself laugh out loud at the sillyness of it all!! A wonderful moment!
Well, what can I say? Clearly I have lost the plot!! Of course I want to be able to share here, with you all, the perfect, delicate nature of this first snowdrop in full bloom. However, it 's clearly not the end of the world and in fact is probably a very good lesson.
