greentapestry : Anticipation

Wednesday, 17 December 2008


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.


  1. Thank you for visiting my blog - I have enjoyed discovering your blog

  2. Glad to see you here patientgardener :)

  3. Lovely to see the snowdrops - the title of your post says it all. Thanks for leaving a message on my blog :)

  4. Oh what a treat Anna! Snowdrops bring so much hope in winter don't they? I can't wait for the snowdrop days at various gardens in the New Year.

  5. Good to see you here HM - that sounds rather regal - I am not sure how to address you :) You are so right - waiting is part of the joy.

    Yes snowdrops do bring so much hope VP and not long to go now until snowdrop time. Look forward to hearing about the snowdrop gardens you get to.


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :
