Snowdrops are in flower.
The tiny petals have pale green edgings. Nature is so wonderful.
When I was on our farm at Te Hihi, the snowdrops flowered in July,
for my Mum’s and my birthdays.She had so many plants all along the side of a hedge,
I remember it as having small red flowers that had tasty juice in them.
Little chooks over our back fence, they cluck to let me know they will come closer.
The black one followed, they both hoped for silver beet leaves.
The leaves were saved for our own dinner tonight.
Further over the paddock, Patrick’s trees are shining in the pale afternoon sun.
