Early flowers

The first snowdrops have appeared at The Mill Forge and they make a very welcome sight, reminding us that Spring is just around the corner.
Did you know that another name for a snowdrop is Candlemas bell? And how appropriate that I'm uploading this photo today because Candlemas is 2nd February!
Just for the record, snowdrops are also known as Mary's taper, Snow piercer, February fairmaids and Dingle-dangles!
