Spring, sort of


While looking for signs of life from my real spring flowers—species tulips, daffs, erythroniums, and others—my eye chanced across this little double snowdrop. It must have been there a while. I think I planted a bunch of these, but this is the first real double blossom I've seen. Strange and pretty.

It's just gorgeous. I just saw a double galanthus on another blog...I 'think' it was Jodi's. But, my memory is going; it could have been anyone;s! Yes,it really is an inspiring sign of spring!

Springtime in Buffalo - you just can't beat it, especially with neat little double Galanthus.

Aren't they pretty? They're the first to bloom here. I want to get some singles this fall for planting, because I don't have any of those, just the doubles, and I can't remember where I got those. I'm guessing Breck's, because I got them early on in my gardening and that's where I got a lot of my spring bulbs back then.

Heh. I'm reading backwards right now in my catchup festival. I was just whining in my earlier comment about the snowstorm we got today--a very different set of snowdrops from these, further burying my real snowdrops. Isn't it fun living in the east/northeast?
