Have I missed Christmas?

Going down the garden to feed the birds this morning, I noticed that the snowdrops are popping up all over the garden. Some of them are over three inches high. Have I slept in too long?

Depends whether you have done the same as Rumplestiltskin ;-)

Here in the Costa del Nairn, it is usually the end of January before the snowdrops push through the snow, and some of the trees here are already starting to bud. The red squirrels are still cavorting around us at all hours. It's all rather strange, really!

I believe that Snow White missed the panto season due to a poisoned magic bean offered by Rumpelstiltskin despite jack Whitington pleading with her to not to eat it, or have I mixed my pantos somewhat?

Unluckily I don't think so. I was taken shopping today by her indoors for a few little odds & sods and boy am I glad it wasn't supposed to be a big shop.

Anyway I did notice that Easter hot cross buns are already in the stores. Makes you wonder if Easter is really early this year.

My Snowflakes which are like big versions of Snowdrops are well up as well and a few are almost ready to flower. It is a pity as a couple of sharp frosts are likely to ruin what is usually a beautiful display.

Have a great day when it does come.
