Hope springs eternal…

The Snowdrop or February’s Flower is a symbol of hope and this is how the story goes: Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden to a land of winter. When Eve was about to give in to a feeling that winter and the falling snow would never end an angel appeared. The angel blew on a snowflake and transformed it in to a snow flower and in doing so gave Eve, and the world, hope.

This next picture is an arrangement of dried snowdrops in a pretty oval frame. It simply says “Real snowdrops from Derbyshire” on the back. Was it bought like this or were the snowdrops taken home by someone who then dried and mounted them? It set me back less than ¬£1.
