I took this picture exactly one year ago today, Sunday 11th March 2012.
We had been to London for our big day out on Saturday (to see Vincent and Flavia in Midnight Tango) and on Sunday the weather was glorious. We had lunch outside in the sunshine. (I rustled up a quiche from what we had in the fridge.)
This is how the weather is today, Sunday 10th March 2013.
So on exactly the same day, one year later, the temperature is colder by about 20°Centigrade.
Which sums up the one reason why I can’t get excited about snowdrops. When the snowdrops are in flower there is always the chance of snow !!
So while everyone is getting excited and waxing lyrical about the snowdrops in their gardens, I almost ignore the clumps in our garden……….give me tulips any day.
When the tulips are in full bloom the winter is well behind us.
Although here in Derbyshire I have known snow well into April or even May, but that’s just about as often as eating lunch al fresco in the middle of March !!
Have a nice Sunday and of course, Happy Mother’s Day !!
