The snowdrops, though --these are tough little plants. They're happy to bloom right through the ice. They're just coming up, and it'll probably take them most of March to really emerge and bloom. These few will turn into larger clumps, and at some point they'll be waving in a warm breeze. Thank goodness spring returns each year.
