Feb 2012 144 Snowdrops emerging from the snow.
In Charles Dickens' book, The tale of 2 cities, Dr Manette is 'recalled to life' after having been 'buried alive' imprisoned in the Bastille for nearly 18 years. These snowdrops were 'buried alive' under snow for only a little over a week but it seemed a long time. I was watching them emerge only to see them buried again when we had more light snow. Happily now, they've all emerged.
