Dear Family & Friends,
I told you that winter only last for a season = three months here... and I'm right of course:) Snow drops comes just at the last month of our winter season - around February. They are the first flower that comes up in our garden.

I was so happy to see the buzzing bees around the cluster on the first warm sunny day. Yes, they're back and they're announcing that spring is a matter of few days away:) I've recently learned that snowdrops are easy to propagate...simply dig them up to divide the bulbs further and replant them. They will multiply quickly. I will do just that as soon as they finish flowering
|I've noticed they have spread under the grapevine areas:)|
Today I have been out gardening for the first time for this new year...How I miss gardening! I surveyed the garden and saw that some new plant shoots are already coming up. I pruned and trimmed old plants, planted the cut stems into the ground, hoping that they will take roots, sown some cold loving salad plant seeds and peas too:) I heard that the next two days will be even warmer before a light sprinkling of rain is to come. Just perfect!! I will carry on again for another day...it's now time to rest:)
Whilst we are very fortunate with almost perfect weather in Bulgaria....Sad to say, UK seem to have non-stop terrible time with lots of storms all throughout the year - it seems:( Recent storm Doris flew a couple of roof tiles which did damage to our house porch:( Must be a very frightening strong wind, but at least no one's hurt. Hopefully I could say...all these are just but for a season...
Still hoping all the best of the week for you! Keep safe wherever you are.
