The Snowdrop

Of all the flowers in my garden, it is the Snowdrop that gives me the most joy.  This humble perennial is short-lived, void of colourful blooms, and only a few inches tall.  I love it the most because it is the first sign of life after the long, dark months of winter; often appearing weeks before any other early spring bloom.  For me, the common Snowdrop is the embodiment of hope and renewal.
