500 snowdrops

I was emailing with my neighbor today and I told her that there were probably about 2000 snowdrops in the backyard and 2000 kids running around my house.  Okay, I was exaggerating about the kids part – there were only four – but I could have sworn there was a riot happening in the basement.  (Important note to self: make sure to dilute sweet fizzy drinks with vodka before serving, otherwise guests get too hyped up).

Snowdrops? I  wasn’t really exaggerating (much) about their numbers.  There are probably at least 500 of them, or more,  scattered throughout the yard, in big patches and small bunches. I think I photographed every single one of them – most of the pictures didn’t turn out that great, but here is one bunch that is growing against one of the raised beds.

While I was outside I noticed that the daphne was blooming. Easy to miss as they are small, intense flowers blooming against bare sticks.
