Snowdrops the first sign of Spring

Our snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) and snowflake bulbs (Leucojum aestivum) have come out of the ground and started to flower. Snowflakes are different from snowdrops as they have white bell-shaped flowers with a precise green dot. These plants, grown from bulbs, grow in clumps in sun or shade and flower in late winter, often for many months.

They are one of my favourite flowers as they are always in bloom on my birthday. Snowdrops are delicate in appearance and need a cold climate to prosper, so are considered to be rare and unusual. Here are some photos of our snowflake flowers in bloom, as our snowdrops are a few weeks of flowering.
