The Snowdrop

HELLO FEBRUARY!  My second daughter was born in February around the time the snowdrops, heads bowed against the cold, appeared through a layer of fluffy white snow. Gathering some from her own garden, my neighbour brought the snowdrops to my door just hours after we brought the new baby home. I put the tiny white flowers in an miniature glass jug that once belonged to my grandmother, creating  a memory that has always stayed with me.

For the next few months I will be spending less time here on my blog to concentrate on my writing. Since 2010 I have blogged almost every week, made many friends and had almost 60,000  page views from all over the world. I've published two novels, am working on the third, and now want to break into short story writing - something I have always wanted to do.

You never know - my first published story might just be called The Snowdrop.

I will miss you but I understand you need the time to concentrate on your stories. Snowdops are my favoutite of all the spring flowers because I have memories of them too. I hope to see you online from time to time, Barbara

Ahh, Barbara - what a lovely thing to say. You are one of the reasons I've enjoyed blogging so much, so I promise I'll be back. Until then, keep safe. x
