Unexpected gift

I’m not one for being envious
But I admit to feeling miffed
Seeing all your lovely snowdrops
In groups or in a drift!

Imagine my delight and glee
When walking round my lawn
I spied a single snowy bell
Alone, pristine, new-born!

I don’t wish to bore you
But here, for your inspection,
Is my unexpected snowdrop -
Solitary, unique, perfection!

That is so beautiful and I am so pleased you saw it. I have waited years to see just one flower so pretty as all mine come to nought. I have recently planted some in the green so fingers toes and eyes will be crossed next Spring. Love Sue x

So glad you've got your Snowdrop Gee
and very glad you've let us see.
Its nice to learn of your delight
to see it all so pure and white.
So if it seeds and spreads around
instead of one, you'll get a mound....... Here's hoping.
Lovely photos Gee and your poetry is catching!!

Thank you, everyone for your kind comments. Well done, Holly and Mad, for your poetic responses :)

Thanks, too, to SBG and Spritz, for letting me know what it really is - hopefully it will multiply; I like the idea of having a snow 'flake' instead of a 'drop' :)

The poets are jostling for pole position
Who'll win the laureate competition?
Too many good poets on here, we really will have to crown a poet laureate, somewhat in the style of the Eisteddfod. Lovely photos of a lovely flower and good poem and good poetic comments...what more can we want:-))

Lovely flower. I thought leucojums flowered in summer so I went looking and there are two versions "Leucojum Vernum", Spring Snowflake, and Leucojum aestivum, aka Summer Snowflake or Loddon Lily. I'm not being picky but at least one member is expressing an interest in acquiring this plant and latin names are important if you want to ensure you get what you pay for. I wonder whether Santa Claus who delivered your present has upset some other gardener. A Squirrel brought me a beautiful red miniture tulip and took away some of mine. Three years later it reclaimed the gift. LOL
