Snowdrops, Primroses and Native American Sense

2 The Primroses have been going all through this mild (but extremely wet) winter.

I love Primroses

I love Primroses

      It was a real delight to get up from my sick-bed to find the snowdrops. A real tonic! I feel pretty good tonight. Glad you are better too. 🙂
