First sign of Hope

Plúiríní Sneachta – that’s the Irish word for Snowdrops. Yes, I agree that it’s dark and cold and miserable these days… But then, in the middle of all that darkness, there’s one thing that always gives me a boost – and that’s our Snowdrops. Every year in the middle of January, they force their way out of the cold ground to greet the new year. They pop up outside my back door, on the way down to my studio and they nod their little heads in the wind and the rain. They’d bring a smile to the grouchiest of people – the first sign of hope, the first sign of Spring.

Bhuel, seo grianghraif ar thóg mé des na Plúiríní Sneachta sa ghairdín, grianghraif ar thóg mé ar an ochtú lá de mhí Eanáir i mbliana, creid é nó ná creid. Tógaim grianghraif des na Plúiríní céanna gach bhlian, níl neart agam air. Nuair a fheicim an ghrian geimhridh ag lonrú orthu, meallann said mé lena h-áille bheag bhídeach. Nach gcuirfeadh siad brí agus beatha ionat!

Meabhraíonn siad domsa go bhfuil an saol ag tosnú aríst nó go bhfuil seans eile againn nó… go mb’fhéidir go n-éireoidh níos fearr linn an babhta seo… Céard fútsa? An gcuireann siad aon rud i gcuimhne duitse?

Always love to hear your comments, talk soon, eoin
