January Snowdrop


It's going to be a long time until the first blooms of spring emerge. When I saw this glob of snow hanging from the branch, I decided it was winter's answer to the snowdrops of spring. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this before. I have no idea what the snow would be clinging to in order to build up like this. I'm sure there's nothing on the end of that branch, except perhaps a small leaf. It is quite large - maybe 6 to 8 inches long.

I've been reading your posts and looking at the photos of your snow and thinking that if that amount of snow fell in the UK, we'd grind to a complete halt - and make the most enormous fuss about it as well. It's very beautiful but I hope it melts soon so you can get out and about if you want to and don't need to worry about being stranded. What does your dog think of it?
