Snowdrops at Ballealy Cottage

Snowdrops were spotted on the grounds of Ballealy Cottage and snapped by Ms. Carroll (thanks!).

It made us think of this …

The Song of the Snowdrop Fairy by Cicely Mary Barker

Deep sleeps the Winter,
Cold, wet, and grey;
Surely all the world is dead;
Spring is far away.
Wait! The world shall waken;
It is not dead, for lo,
The Fair Maids of February
Stand in the snow!
