Many, many welcomes, February fair-maid,

Many, many welcomes,
February fair-maid,
Ever as of old time,
Solitary firstling,
Coming in the cold time,
Prophet of the gay time,
Prophet of the May time,
Prophet of the roses,
Many, many welcomes,
February fair-maid!

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

My snowdrops are on a bank on the far side of the garden, which is currently sodden. Much better to get up close and personal. The old green bottle was dug up in my previous garden.
