Snowdrops On a Cloudy Day

A stretch of very warm days had left me worried about the swelling buds on flowering trees all over the neighborhood. Now we are back to chillier, more normal weather and the snowdrops are flowering. Something about them seems closer to fauna than flora. They are a pack of little white floppy-eared dogs, heads bent, tracking something. Perhaps it is the approach of Spring. The snowdrops will disappear soon, but somehow they know that Spring is coming.
