Delph Wynd Daily

No, even my very limited horticultural knowledge knows that this isn't a pineapple, it's obviously a white flowery green thing.

At lunch time today I stopped off during my normal Tuesday, three county, whistle-stop tour at the National Trust's Pineapple just outside of Airth. I rattled off a few shots of the folly itself but the carpet of snowdrops nearby distracted me. Risking damp and muddy knees I got some shots of these instead and reviewing my shots tonight decided that anything that indicated our long wintery winter was in retreat was much more blipworthy than a fancy looking greenhouse. I also liked the way these delicate wee things were pushing up through the rotting remnants of last year's foliage.

Spring maybe? Bring it on!
