Inspired by | the snowdrop

A sure sign that spring is approaching, seeing the first scatters of bright white emerging amongst the winter leaves always fills me with excitement for the months ahead, as the weather gets warmer, the days get longer and nature comes back to life. We came across these beauties lit up in the sunlight on a walk this morning.


Despite their claims as some of the first flowering plants each year, I feel snowdrops are often overlooked when it comes to floral patterns and accessories – luckily a few talented makers and designers are leading the way.

  1. Urgh i've been so jealous of all the photographs coming out of the UK of crocus and snowdrops coming up, going to be a good couple of months before I see any signs of spring life and bulbs here in Michigan!

  2. So cold and snowy here in Canada! No hope of spring flowers for at least 2 months here! I love living vicariously through blogs from the UK. Seasonally, you are so far ahead!!

    1. At least you get proper snow though! Our winters are grey rather than white!

  3. I've just popped over from EmmaMade blog and love your snowdrop posting.
    Coincidentally I did a blog post with a snowdrop myself last week and thought you might like a read of it.
