Galanthus nivalis

At last, snowdrops.

Just a few, shoving their way through the grass and leaf litter. Spring will happen.

I think their beauty is heightened because there is nothing to distract from them - wonderful!

I love the pic.

They look kind of lonely, but brave! Wish I had planted some, will definitely get some for next time.

Lovely, mine are up too, lonely and brave like yours despite the numbers I put in. Just ordered another 500 in the green.
