The First Flower of Spring....

Snopwdrops
are said to be the first flower of Spring...
 
 
even though it is really just past Mid-Winter,
and that Groundhog
 says we have six more weeks of cold to bear...
 
my Snowdrops are in full bloom...
 

and
they are just as cheery
 as can be...
 

 
in the spirit of Spring,
I decided to dress up a small
glass milk jug...
 
bits of lace
and scraps of ribbon...
 

 
a Sweetheart brooch
at it's throat...
 
it feels perfectly whimsical to me
and a nice escape from dull Wintry Days....

 
I can't wait to have Roses
for my
new shabby vase....


 
a close-up of the flowers lovely details,
usually hidden
by it's drooping head...
 

 

 
 
Sending Warm Hugs
and
Spring Thoughts Your Way....

The first signs of spring, snowdrops, are always most wonderful. You made again such a romantic arrangement with the heart-shaped brooch.

These snowdrops are so pretty in your beautiful glass jar. Love all the images! It's definitely not spring here though. Enjoy!

Your snow drop portraits are exquisite, Bella! Your pretty vase is just made for them. I have never seen snow drops bloom. They are so delicate looking. Funny to think they would emerge when it's still cold. They make a gorgeous posey! Happy Valentines Day Luvey!

Bella, such lovely signs of spring. Your little milk jug is perfectly dressed to show off the beautiful blooms and to celebrate the heart. What a charming little flower and you rarely get to see the whimsy inside of it. Hope you have a beautiful Valentine's Day..Judy
