Snowdrops and more Snowdrops.

        Thanks to Di's Designs.

I have posted two pictures of the house round the corner from where I live that I call Snowdrop House.  Every year it has the most fabulous display of Snowdrops.  It is a very elderly lady that lives there and you can still see her out doing her own gardening. I have a great love of these tiny flowers I always think of my mum when I see them and that I always bought her a bunch for 6d what a bargain.  I don't have a lot of success in my own garden with them I always seem to loose them. I have now got them in a pot labelled so I know where they are.  I came up to do this entry at half past three this afternoon but as usual I got caught with the message that I had to do a full scan it took over an hour and a half and by the time it was finished I had to go an see about some food. It is always me that gets caught with this, next time I will wait till I do what I want to do . It has been bitterly cold here again but we did get out for a run in the car and did a bit of bird watching will write that up later as I would like to post pictures but file manager is not working for me tonight, so for now bye and God bless.

Hi Joan,  I can see why they are called snowdrops, they look so pretty there.  I`ve not had any luck growing them, for some reason they never seem to come up at all for me.  Oh well, I`ll stick to looking at photos of them!  I like your shivering graphic, I know how he feels...lol! :o)

Those snowdrops are very beautiful... I can hardly wait for our snow to melt to see what we have waiting to bloom under the snow... Sandra

Snowdrop house is a very apt name don't they just look so lovely ~
last year we had 1 snowdrop in our huge garden searched for more but didn't find any - the field next door is packed with them now.. I am glad you got out for a run in the car look forward to reading about the bird watching....Ally
