I was rather spoilt for choice when I went to take my photos for today’s post, did I photograph different families of plants or stick to one family, showing 10 different varieties? Having shown everything on the 15th of the month for GBBD, I decided to try and find 10 different snowdrops thatI don’t think I’ve shown you before.
All the snowdrops except G. Alison Hilary are quite new, just 2 or 3 years with me here. Alison Hilary is one of the first ones that I bought many years ago and has increased nicely.
I’ll finish with a couple of long views.
I think the snowdrops are going to be over early this year. In spite of the diabolical weather that the UK has been having lately, it has been a few degrees warmer than usual, which has brought the snowdrops on a couple of weeks. The narcissus are already taking over from them and I can see that the snakeshead fritillaries won’t be far behind them!
I was so glad that the Village Ladies from WI didn’t come for their usual week in February as that was when we were having our storms and it would have been very dangerous to go into the woodland with branches falling each day. They are coming on March 12th, so fingers crossed we won’t be covered in snow and we won’t have any more gales that week! Hopefully, instead of snowdrops, the snakeshead fritillaries will be in full flower, I hope they like them as much as I do!
Thanks to Chloris for hosting this monthly meme at The Blooming Garden, please pay her a visit to see what else is flowering elsewhere.
