Spring time snow drops

After all the snow and cold weather this winter a lot of plants didn't survive in the garden so it was lovely to see snowdrops with their delicate flowers coming into bloom.

It wasn't long before more species were to follow.

Inspired by those first flowers that appeared in the garden, this brooch needle is decorated with a hand knitted snowdrop. It has a white heart shaped glass bead to the left and a cluster of stone chips to its right. An ideal gift for anyone who loves flowers, gardening and spring. Perfect for Mothers Day.
