About Good Scents

The cut flower business ended in 2011 but I continue to post other items about gardening.

First Sign of Spring

There's still about half a foot of snow on the ground but on the south side of my house, under the overhang, there isn't any snow but there is one snowdrop.

People who are not gardeners don't appreciate things like this, but gardeners understand the significance of not just seeing a snowdrop, but seeing the first snowdrop in your own garden. It is because we notice things like this little snowdrop that gardeners know spring is returning even as the temperature is in the teens and the snow is still falling.
