Snowdrops

I tucked a number of snowdrop bulbs (Galanthus nivalis) in the bed in front of the house a couple of years ago. They were in flower this afternoon, much to my delight. They've survived excessive leaf mulch (my gardening companion LOVES leaves and mulch, and forgets about bulbs and perennials...) and are delightful to see today.

I took a (very bad) photo last year on February 3, three weeks earlier than these are flowering.

This is a much better photo image of Galanthus, from Red Butte Botanical Garden.

  1. Great image of your snow drops. There is a garden nearby here a huge garden that is that has a long path of snow drops 300 foot or so.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
