What’s Beautiful Now?

Spring. I know it doesn’t quite feel like it, given my phone told me earlier in the week that it “felt like” 1°F outside, but the small, sturdy flowers shouldering their way up out of the ground are the best evidence that we’re almost out of these wintry woods.

Snowdrops (Galanthus) are not only dainty and elegant in their simple presentation, but they’re also some of the first flowers to signal the coming season. All around our Perennial and Azalea Gardens these nodding bell-shaped blooms are popping up in crowds. No doubt the Galanthophiles are buzzing with joy.

Elsewhere you’ll find sunny yellow Adonis, and of course the purples and whites of newly opened crocuses. So the next time you’ve got to cinch your scarf a little tighter against the wind, try and stave off your winter blues with the promise of some much greener things to come. —MN
