February has come around again, giving me hopeful expectations, optimism and promise of spring. Walking around the village today was a delight with many plants typifying where we have reached in the year. Daffodils, crocuses, winter flowering cyclamen and primroses are so delightful to experience. The plant that always inspires me most of all are snowdrops; walking through Church view meadow Quorn, I saw a beautiful display of them nodding their heads in the wind. I made some sketches trying to capture them en masse, which resulted in the watercolour below.
