'I wonder if the sap is stirring yet,
If wintry birds are dreaming of a mate,
If frozen snowdrops feel as yet the sun,
And crocus fires are kindling one by one:
I still am sore in doubt concerning Spring'
- Christina Rossetti 1830 -1994
I spotted this little clump of snowdrops just across the road from where I live today and my heart skipped a beat ! No doubts concerning spring as far as I am concerned - it's not far behind.
