Of all the flowers in the garden, the first sightings of snowdrops especially make my heart skip a beat. Given recent doctor's advice that my pulse rate is fast maybe I should henceforth resist from one to one chats with snowdrops. This is Galanthus plicatus 'Three Ships' which when I checked last week, was just showing the tiniest peek of white and now look ! What is more a bonus too - after two years my single bulb has a companion. I am hoping that it will live up to its seasonal name and be fully open by Christmas Day. As the immediate weather forecast is for mild, wet and windy conditions the odds are favourable. I will not be able to resist looking every day from now on and will report back.
