The Flowers of January

Almost missed these ones tucked awayIt’s January and there are flowers starting to bloom all over the place. Snowdrops, crocuses, primroses, even daffodils and myrtle. Most of what is going to flower is already showing five to six inches of growth above ground and laden with buds getting ready.

I’m sharing these in light of the past week the folks at home experienced, a week of high temperatures that barely exceeded freezing. It hasn’t even been cold enough for a frost in the evenings here in recent weeks.

I love winter in England.
