Well, they've been up next to the church for almost a week. But today snow drops were blooming in front of the rectory. I thought maybe I had forgotten to plant them last fall. The other bulbs have already put up their leaves. But as I walked by the rectory on my way to an appointment at Dunkin' Donuts this afternoon, there they were - little white dots all over the ground I had planted. Snow drops.
Bulbs in bloom are the best part of Spring.
