Snowdrops are one of my favourite FIRST flowers to appear each year.
Which are yours?
Over Half Term we are going to take part in a Snow Drop walk at the wonderful Rode Hall and Gardens in Cheshire, we cant wait to see them all, and enjoy some time outside. There is something so special about the Snowdrops little heads looking downwards, but often peeping up in all weather conditions, through the frost and snow.
Check your local area for similar activities and get out into the fresh air before they finish.

If your wanting to learn more about Snowdrops, head over the the RHS website or BBC Gardeners World, for practical information and get planting some blooms now, they will come up each year and its a view to cherish each season.
Naturally, my love for Snowdrops has extended into fabric and Accessories, I've always really loved this beautiful fabric by Liberty | Designer Department Store Selling Luxury Brands (libertylondon.com) and comes in some great colours, Indigo, Pastel Pink, Teal and Mint.
Some information on the print Liberty ‘Hesketh House’
‘First printed in 1896, Hesketh’s original design was an Art Nouveau furnishing fabric unearthed within the Liberty archive. It features monochrome snowdrops on a spot background – a perfect small floral design, drawn into a stylised trail’
I think it works perfectly for my Knotted Headband, Scrunchie's and Clutch bags.
All available now in my shop and Etsy, why not wear one if you go on a Snow Drop walk!
