I don’t necessarily mind this time of year, it’s a bit gloomy at times and the garden doesn’t have the day to day surprises and continuous parade of blooms, but it’s a breather, and a chance to refocus before you start dreaming of summer again! With that said I’m still ready for a distraction, and of course that makes me more than happy to jump into the photo files and join in with Cathy’s Week of Flowers, which she is hosting again this year on Words and Herbs. The instructions couldn’t be any simpler, “post a flower a day for a week”, and I think even I can stick with those rules. Obviously I’ll start with snowdrops… far from the most colorful flower, yet they’re the flowers which I obsesses most over.
So day one complete. Probably one of the shortest snowdrop related posts you’ll ever see on this blog but I hope you enjoyed it, and I’m sure you’ll find more to enjoy as others check in for Cathy’s week of flowers!
You have an impressive Galanthus collection, Frank. Always beautiful to see!
Thanks Eliza! You’ll have to sit through another showing in just a few more weeks 😉
No problem there! 🙂
Yes, I did enjoy it Frank, wonderful to think that in a few weeks we’ll be enjoying them every day!
It will soon be here! -except we might get a good amount of snow still beforehand 😉
Wonderful, Snowdrops are so much a part of late Winter early Spring for me. Although if you have them flowering in December that’s a bit longer than late Winter.
Only a few flowers brave the winters here like snowdrops do. These are actually a little smarter though, and get their blooming done in the fall.
Oh yes, I did enjoy that Frank. Any colour is welcome in winter, even green and white! Glad you’re joining us… I think about a dozen other blogs have contributed so far. 😃🌷😃
Thanks for hosting, I enjoyed having an excuse to revisit last spring and imagine how exciting this one will be!
All very nice and I wish I could lay my hands on ‘Potter’s Prelude’ which I don’t see offered here at all.
‘Potter’s Prelude’ is a nice one. I don’t think this will help you at all but it’s very similar to the G. elwesii monostictus which grow by the thousands at Montrose Gardens here in the US. They all seem to be of the same type… but then different again from the usual named forms of fall blooming elwesii… imo

It is always a treat to see your collection of Galanthus.
