The sun did come out for quite a while on Saturday and what a difference it made to the snowdrops. Those sitting in a pool of sunshine opened their petals wide to any passing bee and I was able to get a record of their markings. I’ll start with G. Jonathan who I was hoping would open his petals for the last post.
There was great excitement we we saw that G. Jonathan had opened up its petals, out I dashed with my camera.
A close up of G. Jonathan showing his beautiful markings.
Trumps is towering over Spindlestone Surprise and looks as if he is marching towards it in a take over bid. I’ll have to move Spindlestone Surprise to where it will have more room.
Lots more flowers opening on G. woronowii.

All white Anglesey Abbey.
G. Robin Hood, this one flowers later than Little John here.
a better view of dainty G. gracilis than the one I showed the other day.
G. St Annes.
G. Lapwing looking as if they are all about to take off.
G. Wasp doesn’t open its petals very far, but still showing more of their markings than the other day.
G. Hobson’s Choice with petals open wide.
Is this Ding Dong does anyone know please? The marking is like a pair of scissors.
There are lots more still to open, the weather this week is atrocious with gales and rain so I think my little white flowers will be staying tightly shut for a while, definitely not weather for photographing them! I hope the weather is better where you are.
