Photo Friday: Finally, Snow!

.
So, it's February and after one of the mildest winters in a long time that I've experienced in the Netherlands, we finally have a decent snow fall!

I think it's doubtful that the snow will last more than another week, but it was well worth the wait. :o)

However, last week, my garden thought it was spring already and the bulb plants had started sprouting (not good) ... oh well. Some of the crocus were beginning to bloom two weeks ago, then they went through a dusting of ice and snow. :o( 

I started a drawing of two tender young crocus blooms among the little bits of icy snow of last week ... will post it tomorrow, after I finish playing in this soft new snow! :o))))

tot ziens,
Judy
