Snowdrops – every time! As it happens, I photographed these yesterday. For me they signal the beginning of the end of winter, which is not my favourite season.
Of course, there may be days like this to come before Spring really arrives – cold clear days when the sun shines and I can enjoy the snow briefly before scurrying back inside.
And last January we had visitors playing in the back garden – my little camera struggled with the distance but it was magical to see them.
