Snowdrops


Dainty snowdrops! The clumps in my backyard were transferred from the flower gardens of my mother in law years ago. My grandmother had these too, and they are always among the first flowers of spring.

Is that what they are called, snowdrops? There are some in my backyead, they have been there for years, they dont quite have the flowers yet though. I do like how there are always so many of them.

Wow, nice shot ... stunning when enlarged! Could Spring actually be getting there before here?

Yes, Jim, these really are snowdrops! I wasn't sure if the name was right or not, but I looked them up.

George T., I wondered the same thing about Memphis the other day when I saw redbuds in bloom on Southern Heart's blog. They are even close to blooming here yet. Must be a different variety or something.
Anyhow, we are getting another shot of winter this weekend with snow flurries predicted just north of here!

Oh I love these little flowers! They make me happy just to see them.

Oh, how lovely! Our daffodils are out now, and I saw redbuds blooming today. Unfortunately, it's supposed to snow today. UGH!

Thanks for the visit.

I have been enjoying your site. I found it through SWF.

Scientific nameis (Leucojum aestivum)
Also known as Summer Smowflake. I don't know why because it blooms really early and is a tough little plant.

Really nice photo in a natural setting.
