Joy In The New Year

Longest Night has past, and each day is getting just a little bit longer than the last.   The mornings sport a thick frost  in Victoria this week, but happily no snow.

As a reward for braving our winter chill, the snowdrops smile up at me .

Life springs eternal.  🙂

They’re snuggled under some cozy leaves, but I’m sure they’ll be even happier when I add a layer of mulch in the coming week.

And believe it or not – – there’s more!  The first cyclamen coum bloom of the season.

Granted it is super tiny
and you have to put on special glasses to see it…
but it’s there!

(HONESTLY!)

Happy New Year!
