Yay! Snowbells!

Wow! This photo was taken today, January 19th. These are snowbells (Latin name Leucojum aestivum) and depending on the severity of the winter, they can come up once the days start getting longer. Today I was a little surprised that they are already about an inch or two above ground. In 2014 they didn't come up until April! However our weather has been warmer than in the past few years. In any case, it is a joy to see them and know that spring is on the way! I'll post more photos once they are in bloom.
