Snowdrops, Galanthus nivalis,  in my back garden in Hayes.
Snowdrops, Galanthus nivalis,  in my back garden in Hayes.
I planted some of these a few years ago, and they are the first flowers of the new year in my garden.  There are places in this area where they grow wild in profusion.  I saw this at Knockholt last year in mid-February.  Perhaps these are a little earlier because it is always a little warmer in conurbations.


  1. Just found our first for this year, we are always behind up here in the North :)
