Kate Humble would be proud of us today heading out on our very own ‘Spring watch’. We were in search of that ever so delightful Spring show-stopper, the snowdrop, and we weren’t to be disappointed. It took us a while but after a good old trek around our local National Trust woods we found the smallest and very dearest little patch of snowdrops pushing through. The kids had to be restrained to avoid standing on the wee things but after a little guidance they stood for a while and admired these little magical beings. ‘They’re like little drops of snow mummy’, ‘ they’ve got very droopy heads mummy’, ‘aren’t they sweet mummy’. I wholeheartedly agree!! What a perfect excuse to get out of the house!!! A snowdrop hunt. What joy!
