Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

My Only Patch of Snowdrops



It's not much, but it's flowering. I'm absolutely going to have to get more of these. It's so heartening to see their cute little blooms in mid-January.

  2. Hi Alison, I posted my comment before I was done writing, it's been one of 'those' days. I love the snowdrop, it is beautiful. I wonder if I can grow them here, I'll have to look into it. The closest thing I have to very early spring bloom is my one, lone hellebore, and I don't think I have it planted in the right place. So good to see a green, growing, glowing plant, it sure brightened my day.

  4. I thought they were supposed to naturalize, but alas, my patch remains small. Guess it's time to plant more of these early beauties.

  5. How sweet! We are scheduled for ice or snow!?! in deep south Texas later this week. Should have planted bulbs as it has been cold this winter. Just a few more weeks.....

  6. I have a little patch of snowdrops outside my front window. They are blooming, and the patch is slowing increasing!
    Spring is a long way off but that doesn't stop the sarcococca and witch hazel and snow drops, and soon, the daphne odora, and the hellebore, of course. We are so fortunate to have winter bloomers here.

  7. Snowdrops in January always gets a smile on my face when I see them open their snowy blossoms in my garden. I understand completely!

  8. Sweet! Mine are a little behind yours but they're fairly prolific. I think the squirrels like to replant the little bulbs for me. I inherited a lot of them (simple two petal variety) with the house. If you'd like some, I'll dig some bulbs for you once the foliage dies back.

  10. Mine bloom in March or, if a really mild winter, in February. More is better. Fortunately they spread nicely.

  11. Very pretty with the raindrops Alison. I'm sure you shall have your wish - the more the merrier I think :)

  12. Don't you love these little jewels? As you saw from my blog, mine are barely out of the ground but there are buds. There is hope. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that we can survive February without any dramatic temperature drops. Rain would be good too.

  14. They are so cute! I had no idea they were so tiny until I planted a few in my yard.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
