Galanthus 'Three Ships'

Said to have been named three Ships because when open the outer petals resemble three small ships ,
as in the Christmas Carol. we see three ships come sailing in come sailing in in the morning.
One problem there is no Sea within 30 miles of Bethlehem.

Camels are often called ships of the Desert could that be the answer,not sure but my snowdrops don't look like camels,lol enjoy the picture.

They are beautiful Brian. The new season seems to be arriving so quickly. I have just brushed up the autumn leaves and the bulbs are appearing.

They are very nice, Brian! I love seeing Snowdrops almost as much as Crocuses! These are spectacular! :-))

Yes the usual Nivalis snowdrop is just showing here.
It is surprising how you can extend their flowering period with different varieties, certainly from Nov to March without much trouble inside or out.

going to PM you

No sign of the Snowdrops on the balcony as yet but the Crocuses long ago showed up. The Daffs are also showing though this time last year they were in bud on the balcony & flowered at the end of the month!
