Search Heart and Soil

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.  

Hee hee!

  1. Yes, but we can share your joy :) Years ago we shared memories perfectly adequately without our cameras, and we learned to write expressively and beautifully, as you've just done. (having said that, I never, ever go out without my camera!)

  2. Oh, I do love snowdrops and you describe them so beautifully. I've yet to spot any around here but I'm back in 'the shire' this weekend so hopefully I might see some there.

  3. Ah Willow looks so tired, but so content. Words were a great way to share with us my friend, it makes us use those precious imaginations of ours. And you had a wonderful moment with them, thats the most important part!

  4. I can't believe you didn't have your camera!!! lol

    You described it beautifully, though. Sometimes you don't need a thousand words.

    I love to see a border collie that tired! Must have been a lovely walk.

  5. It has got to the point that I *always* take my camera with me ..."just in case"..

    but I don't need a picture as I can SEE that snowdrop in my mind's eye, thanks to your words...

  6. I was going to say that with your vivid description no camera was needed, until I realized I had no idea what a snowdrop looks like. They don't grow in my area of Canada. For that matter, nothing grows here in January.

    However it only took two seconds on the internet to find scores of snowdrop pictures. They look like delicate, but hardy, little flowers.

    Thank you, I learned something today.

  15. I think you may have said more than the picture of it could. Your feelings for it translated beyond the colours the photo could ever portray. You are springing forth just as the spirited flower is.

  16. Camera or not, I could still feel your joy and enthusiasm coming through in this post and you drew such a beautiful picture of a snowdrop with words that I could visualise it.
