Flowers: Snowdrops marking the Start of Spring



For the last few weeks there has been something peeping at me from the hedgerows and making me smile as I drive around the Dorset countryside in search of my next renovation project. The snowdrop is one of my favourite flowers and I love it even more for the fact that it bravely flowers in the winter; they bring a smile to my face not only because they are such beautiful little flowers, but also as they mark the beginning of Spring. Carpets of them are now in bloom across the country and whilst it’s most lovely to see them in their wild habitat, they are also great to bring indoors to decorate your home, or even to incorporate into your wedding bouquet for a lovely seasonal countryside look. Next time you spot some snowdrops, delicately pick a few, bring them home and pop them in vintage bottles for a gorgeous rustic look or add a bunch to a small jug, like the picture above, for a more shabby chic feel.
