Recently I found a lovely garden photo challenge at Cathy’s blog Rambling in the Garden.   Even though there are hellebore flowers blooming in my garden, I did not want to pick them for an indoor floral arrangement.  However, as I was about to climb the steps to my front door after work today, I spied a bright patch of snowdrops obviously awaiting my discovery.  Every year around this time, I am always surprised to find them blooming, as though they somehow evade my detection until they decide to pop out of the ground happily showing their delicate white buds.

As I saw them, I immediately wondered how these tiny blooms would look in a little vase.  I will let you be the judge.
