Snowdrops – the first signs of Spring?

This morning’s drizzle-damp walk along the Brook and up onto the Railway Walk was brightened considerably by the sighting of a snowdrop (see above picture)-is this the first sign of Spring? It is hard to be lulled into a false sense of security about the possible onset of warmer weather-I can still recall talking part in the Annual 24 hour RNLI race at Himley Sailing Club in May one year, and being unable to drink a bottle of water which had been lying near the centreboard casing-it was frozen!
