This is a pot of the Galanthus nivalis which inhabits our garden. We do not think it is straight nivalis as it seems to be sterile.
And this is what they look like en masse
There are more as well.
They look amazing! Maybe we should all visit your garden
That's really lovely, Berghill.
As long as you avoid falling down the mole holes, you are welcome. Oh and bring your gardening gloves, there is a lot of work needing doing.
The snowdrops are indeed particularly good this year - not the numbers you have yet, but they are spreading well. Amused, and happy, to see that underneath a road sign just outside our drive, a goodly patch are growing - the birds must sit there when busily digesting the seeds - and nature does the rest - great.
Your snowdrops are looking lovely Berghill. I've had a clump in flower in a sunny front bed since mid December but no sign yet of the ones out the back and still in shade but when they do eventually come and then go over, I shall split them into my woodland area and maybe in 10 years time I'll have a display like yours.
I am busily spreading my clumps down from the butterfly garden and spinney into the middle garden ,my Persian Runner. the clump i divided up last year are making a good show already and have the odd self seeded one here and there. It was such a relief to see they liked their new home.
How lovely, they look beautiful.
A sight like that really lifts the spirits
They're stunning en masse like that. That's the way to have them Berghill
Easy to forget how beautiful these little gems are once summer comes along.
