A Humble Bloom

P1020653

I cannot say just how much I love to see the bowed heads of the snowdrops as they emerge in February. That first sign of growth and humble bloom that comes with the spring equinox.

Here and there among the broken and dead twigs and detritus, the deep green shoots of the daffodils, bluebells and narcissi are urging up towards the sunlight. Sunlight of which we now have a little more each day.

This time of year the signs are all around us of the natural cycles of life. The buds are bursting forth on the trees, the birds are heading back to our warming Isles. There will still be cold days and maybe snow but the signs of what’s to come are never far from sight. And that warms the heart enough.
