Snowdrops Brighten a Foggy Day!

It was a drippy, foggy, gloomy morning...but made for a few cool pictures..

Visibility was poor, in some spots near zero, so much so that I drove past my turn in Wanchese on the way to a quilting day with friends, though I have been there many times.
I saw a little clump of spring green when I made a dash in to the convenience store....

I had a happy day of sewing and laughing with friends before packing up my machine. As I started out towards eyes zeroed in on....
...a joyful little clump of snowdrops blooming in Wanchese!!!!

And when I thought is was a fluke...I saw ANOTHER clump on Bay Drive in spirits lifted, Spring can't be too far away!
