The Temperature’s Rising And The Snowdrops Are Out
Snowdrops: a perennial, herbaceous plant whose Latin name (Galanthus species) means ‘milk flower’ and of which 19 species are recognised.
These are most probably Galanthus nivalis – the Common snowdrop.
The iron fixture behind them is the base of pole at one end of the washing line.
Can you ‘detect’ what I see – the slightly dour and forbidding light of February in Edinburgh?
The sun did shine brightly yesterday, but today the sun was hidden and the sky was tempered and shot through with blue-grey – a look that I know so well from these Northern cities.
