Snowdrops Are Blooming

Snowdrops (Galanthus) — Germantown, Maryland

Spring is definitely upon us… we’ve gone from days where the high is 30°F, to days where the high is over 70°F in less than a week. The buds are emerging on the nearby maple trees, green shoots are already well established for the daffodils, and the snowdrops — some of our earliest bloomers — are in full cry.

This is my favorite season of the year, the time when new plant growth has a fresh and wonderful yellow-green pop to it, and we’re surrounded by colors that appear super-saturated.

  1. Alas, we have another month and a half to two months of winter-possible weather to get through. Though this latest warm spell has melted the snow covering the road into our cul de sac and the ice is thinning on the river.
    Your photo is stunning.

    1. Welcome and thank you kindly! What region do you hail from?

      We’re in central Maryland, so this warming period may be a flash-in-the-pan before winter is totally done with us. Last year we had a long enough warm spell that everything began to bloom, then we had a hard freeze over Mother’s Day in May that killed much of the early blooming crops, like peaches in particular.

      Spring is when I take lots of similar flower photos as each variety begins to pop, so be sure to come back for your spring fix!
