Snowdrops – Anyone?


I took this picture on the 20th January 2008 – but I have no sign of snowdrops in the garden today.

Does anyone have snowdrops in their garden?

  1. I think I can see some shoots coming up in one of my borders. There is a snowdrop ‘group’ on flicker they track down pictures of snowdrops and invite you to include your pictures. Or least that is what they did with me last year when I put a picture up in flicker. They may have already captured some of this years lot!

  2. Hi. My snowdrops are about a quarter inch out of the ground. I think they’re about on schedule for western Oregon although this has been a colder than normal winter. Beautiful picture.

    I now know I am mad, I’ve just been down the garden in the rain with a torch and seen lots of snowdrops.It’s 10.25pm. Pop round for tea then you can see them to.

    No snowdrops in my garden, but then again I haven’t any bulbs. Mmmm. On my plants list maybe.

  6. No snowdrops – but excited to see little bits of crocus poking up above the soil. Less pleased to see some of them have already been eaten by slugs – haven’t they noticed how cold it is?

  7. They are tantalisingly almost open here and probably despite the colder winter were at much the same stage in 2008.

  8. My very early one still hasn’t opened fully but all the others are just showing white above the soil. This seems to have happened over the last few days. Perhaps they sense better weather coming!

  9. Thanks for the comments everyone,
    Snowdrops are such a welcome sign – it feels that winter has really passed when the make an appearance.

    Esther – I went to look at my day lilies to-day, they are starting to put on some growth, and they too have been eaten 😦
