Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Enthusiastic Snowdrop

One teeny-weeny Galanthus has poked its head above the soil, and is already blooming. I have to admire its enthusiasm, but it's a bit braver than I. We're still getting night-time temps at or just below freezing, and I'm sure we'll have more cold (if not snowy) weather before winter ends. I'm doing winter clean-up in short, cold, damp, one- or two-hour stretches, which is all I can take.
