I’ve got to test this out. How universal is the thrill of bulbs at this phase? This eruption through the earth’s crust is the perfect physical representation of the rumblings of joy that emerging bulbs produce.
Or is it just me?
The really big moment of these snowdrops is weeks away. This early pleasure is incomplete. It’s all about what’s being promised. But if you could assign pleasure points objectively, I reckon you’d find that the thrill is as good right now as it ever gets. You can’t wait for them to flower, but the current/present pleasure at the ‘can’t wait’ stage is astonishing.
