Happy Love Thursday!




I have been following Love Thursday over at chookoloonks for a while.
Now I thought it would be nice to start this photo-blog with a bit of love: the snow drops have just come out in the south of England (after a rare bout of snow). They are the first signs of spring (and joy and growth and love!). I took a photo of those in my garden two days ago and noticed only then that the green spots on their leaves are in truth little green hearts. So I was pleased.
Just a few days before, the Glyme Valley, near my house, looked like this:



And I know - for somebody who lives somewhere less maritime or more northern this amount of snow is a trifle. But for England this was SCANDALOUSLY wintery, and we were snowed in and couldn't leave the village for days, in fact.

Lovely photos! I've been watching for snowdrops here in Ohio, but I think we need another week or two of warm sunshine. Happy Love Thursday!

Thank you all for your lovely comments and, of course, your own LT entries!
@margieandkath: yeah - I know - we were pathetic! Nobody has winter tyres here, and the country ran out of salt after day two...
