Snowdrops, Ashbank Wood, Close House

  • Description

    ""Sweet harbinger of lengthening days, And Phoebus' animating rays, And all that summer yields; Long stript of Flora's lovely train, By whelming storms that sweep the plain, Galanthis welcome! once again, To cheer our lawns and fields. Her peerless robes, ye gales oh spare! Let no rude blast the vesture tear, Nor spoil the emerald dyes; Her presence speaks of scenes that cheer; Of valleys green, of meadows fair; Of evening walks with friends most dear, Whose spirits harmonize." From 'Poems on Conchology and Botany : with Plates and Notes' by Sarah Hoare (1831)" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2009.
