Wildflower Sunday

I had two things on my mind today before I left the house that is to buy bread from the farmer’s market and check on the wildflowers still blooming in the mild December air. It was raining when I woke up but the weather app said it will stop around 11am and it did. Outside the rain droplets were hanging down from the trees like the best Christmas decorations. It felt fresh and warm.

I have checked on the snowdrops which have already produced the seed pods. I hope they will flower again in spring. There are lots of young shoots growing from the ground and still lots of green foliage but almost completely bare trees.
