For weeks I have been seeing absolutely loads of snowdrops near where I work, but they seemed to take an age to come out up here!

So this week we went hunting snow drops!! And went to see if we could spot a Snowdrop Fairy!!

Deep sleeps the Winter,
Cold, wet, and grey;
Surely all the world is dead;
Spring is far away.
Wait! the world shall waken;
It is not dead, for lo,
The Fair Maids of February
Stand in the snow!

This is a great activity to introduce a bit of poetry to children and flower identification!!
