First Galanthus!

"I would like to grow every snowdrop I ever heard of. Although I started many years ago to make as complete a collection as possible, I still have only the common sorts, for many are rare and very hard to come by - and difficult to establish as well."

Today I have had the opportunity to stumble across a mass of Galanthus sp., common name Snowdrop, just starting to flower. Being so tiny, at a mere 3" tall, they could be easy to miss. I am excited to see such a delicate flower emerge after our latest freezing temperatures. Also flowering in the garden are Crocus, Erica carnea, and Chaenomeles speciosa. I can't wait to see what will come next!

Until then,
