As we have finally been blessed with some good weather with warmer temperatures, the bulbs are emerging. This is a new snowdrop for me, that I planted last year, Galanthus ‘Dionysus’. It’s a pretty double with distinct green markings, that I’ve planted under my Quince tree in the front garden.
Life hasn’t been easy in the last couple of months, with the ME being really bad, along with severe POTS symptoms. Then sadly, my partners elderly mum, Audrey, died. So this post is dedicated to the incredible Dr Audrey Meaney, who greatly enjoyed seeing the bulbs coming up each Spring. I’m sad she will miss them this year, but love that seeing them reminds me of her. It’s from Audrey that I developed an interest in birds and wildflowers, and I carry what I learned from her, in my heart with joy. Rest in atoms, Audrey.
