Cold, Wet and Irrepressible

It’s still very cold here in Ireland.  The trees are still bare.alder2

This is one of Sally‘s favourite trees in the area.  It’s an alder.  Alders like to get their toes wet.

The trees may be bare but Mother Nature is not sleeping in my garden.  Here are some daffodils poking their heads up.  daffodils

And the snowdrops are already blooming in the undergrowth.

  1. I laugh as I look outside at the driveway I have to go shovel — that you have flowers blooming and you’re at a latitude where polar bears are found elsewhere. It gives me hope that I’ll be seeing flowers in my yard again soon. Thanks for the beautiful photos. 😀
