I haven't seen any of mine yet, either! These are lovely ... a real sign of spring and better days around the corner. Thanks for sharing them with us.

These are really advanced - mine too are tight buds. Even with the snow it's so much milder where you are. Still, everybody else's will still be flowering when yours go over. Swings and roundabouts, eh?

20 Jan, 2010

 

Perfect Spritz! Yep, we're on the way up!!....!

20 Jan, 2010

 

It went back down to 3 degrees today, but no snow, thank goodness. :-))

You're right, Wagger! LOL.

Oh dear - more problems, Ray? I know that some people had snow today. :-((

20 Jan, 2010

 

No more snow Spritz...but freezing cold and very hard frosts ! Only sign of snowdrops is a bit of foliage emerging..............

20 Jan, 2010

 

We've had snow again last night and this morning but the rain has washed it away thank goodness. The snowdrops are lovely and such a cheery sight at this time of year

20 Jan, 2010

 

It didn't reach as far west as us - thank goodness. Gloucestershire was badly hit, though. Yes - I wait and watch for the first snowdrops every year! :-)

I'm not very lucky with snow drops, they say to plant snowdrops when they are in flower, so i'm going to get some when i see any in GC.

21 Jan, 2010

 

wow great to see someones first snowdrops... mine havnt appeared yet...... i was just wondering when someone would put some pics up......lovely to see them..........

21 Jan, 2010

 

Carol - get them 'in the green' which means when the flowers have finished but while the leaves are still there. If you can fit in a hundred, which isn't that many, you can get them from a bulb firm for about £8.

PM me if you want any info on where.

i have just noticed them starting to peak between the fallen leaves.

Thank you Barbara no sign of mine yet in the garden.

22 Jan, 2010

 

Lovely to see them Spritz, I have been watching for the first sign of white ever since the snow melted last week but only tufts of green as yet. Hubby moans when I insist he mows around that bit of the lawn until they are dying down.

22 Jan, 2010

 

That's why I can't have Narcissi in the lawn, Homebird! He would mow right over them. :-(( At least a lot of my snowdrops are in the borders, and a lot round the trunk of the ash tree - the grass there doesn't need cutting until the snowdrops have finished. :-))

22 Jan, 2010

 

Thanks Barbara for the info ...

22 Jan, 2010

 

I will have a look at mine this weekend :)

27 Jan, 2010

 

Hope you find some in bloom, Vicky.

You're welcome. C. xx
