Late winter snowdrops…
Virgin brides adorned in white,
their stamens veiled.
I can’t even imagine any snowdrops here yet!!!

These one first came into flower about 3 weeks ago, but some varieties of UK snowdrops bloom early January. I have some splendid daffodils out, too. I’m also being entertained by Mrs Blackbird, who has been busy since last week collecting bits from my garden to make her nest. It is very Spring-like here today.
Guess we each have something special about where we live. I can’t see any here right now, but I’m sure something will come along and remind me… 😉
…when mine are over with 😉
Ha ha! But then you’ll be ahead of us on something else!!
We have a different sort of snowdrops falling from the sky this morning. Sigh. I long for spring. 🙂 Wonderful way to begin my day, by reading your poetic art.
Thank you, Bill 🙂 We could still get some snowflakes, too. It’s not unheard of in March in the UK, but very rare. I hope not, though, as the birds think it’s Spring.
So pretty! And haikus are a theme this morning – lots of folks are writing some. Hmm…I wonder if that’s a sign for next week’s blog post. Hehe.
Those snow drops are just divine! Are they in your yard? Hope you’re well and sending hugs!
A plague of haikus, to infect us with beauty! I try to start each week with a haiku, to share something positive with people that helps to calm and uplift them.
Yes, those snowdrops are in my yard, or “back garden” as the British call it! They are my one and only clump of snowdrops, but they flower year after year without fail, along with my primroses, violets, and daffodils! Sending you hugs, too 🙂
Great imagery Sarah, love the way you use the bridal imagery.
Thank you, Andrea 🙂 Ah, brides! I know that there are several varieties of snowdrops, but the plant in that photo has a particular density of whiteness to its petals. There are other varieties that are not so pure, with greenish stripes to the petals, and those wouldn’t do for bridal veils at all!
A beautiful Haiku.
Thank you 🙂
Lovely & spring is coming!
It’s so beautiful here today. Blue sky. A slight breeze. Puffy white clouds. Multitudinous birds singing. And loads of flowers coming into bloom. What more could I wish for? (Ah, yes, one of those pretty blue jays of yours!).
After reading such nice and beautiful haikus, I’m getting excited to have a go at it. Beautiful Haiku, this one!
Thank you, so much 🙂 Good luck with your haiku writing. It is very addictive, once you start.
Thank you! I am looking forward to publish a haiku as quickly as I can.
New York City’s snowdrops must be whispering into your ear. We had some snow yesterday, and I just walked by a patch of snowdrops in white… more white than the ones in your picture. But like the ones in your haiku, they look rather bridal. 🙂
Snowdrops look extra pretty, when there’s snow on the ground, too. I think that New York City must be much colder than the SE coast of England just now. Today, it’s 13 degrees centigrade, if not warmer in my sheltered garden 🙂
