The extremely cold winter has brought some rewards,I have three small clumps of English Snowdrops flowering at present. This is the most blooms I have ever had.
Possibly the cold weather has suited them.
Unfortunately I have not been able to get a photo as I cannot get close enough with my digital camera - I miss not having macro lens.
I thought this quote quite appropriate - "The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy
places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size."
