Wordless Wednesday: Snow drops

By

All Rights Reserved.  Snow drops photographed a couple of years ago in early spring when the flowers were just beginning to bloom for the year.  These particular snow drops come from bulbs in our front yard flower bed in Monroe Wisconsin.  With the warm weather this week, I won't be surprised to see some popping up very soon!

I never heard of snow drops before, but they seem appropriately named, and beautiful. Great picture, hope you can get some more real soon.

Jen and Karen, thanks for stopping by and commenting!

 

Linda, they are aptly named.  Many years there is still snow on the ground around them while they are blooming.

You had warm weather, Brenda?  Everywhere else seems to be in a bit of a freeze.  Those are beautiful snow drops you have, though.

Maria, I am trying to rush it a little here. I can't wait this year.

Monique, they are snowdrops. They are very small little flower, the entire plan it only a couple inches tall.

Lynda, thanks!

Heather, this photo was from a previous year. I am anticipating again, just like with my crocus photo from a couple weeks back. Spring can't come soon enough for me this year!

Sonny, I don't even know which varietal this one is as it come with our house. There are many perennials, and the first year was such a surprise to see what popped up where.

Paul, thanks! I love trying to do just that.

Tony, this is one kind of snow I am always excited to see.

Sharon, the name certainly fits this little flower. It is always the first to pop up and bloom here.
