    Hey, yours are up too! Just saw Cathy’s post! Look forward to more. 🙂

  2. Julie says:

    What a perfect name for your snowdrop, its beautiful.

  3. Debra says:

    I love small and beautiful things. Look at how much is alive even in winter. (happy sigh)

  4. Chloris, have you ever guessed how many different plants and flowers grow in your garden? It is such an interesting garden. And how did this Snowdrop get to your garden from its original spot?

  5. Anna says:

    She is a beauty Chloris. Funnily enough mine in pot under cover now in the greenhouse is not as advanced as yours. These December flowering snowdrops always seem extra special.

    • Chloris says:

      I love them. How odd that yours in the greenhouse isn’ t out yet. Mine wasn’ t as early last year.
      The Blonde Inge you gave me is showing its snout above the soil. I am very excited to see the flower.

  6. Cathy says:

    Whoohoo for Mrs Macnamara, even though she isn’t the first of yours to flower. Now, do I dare go and poke around to see if my Mrs M is doing anything…..

  7. Christina says:

    It is lovely to see the things that should be flowering now, somehow it is more hopeful than flowers out of season.

  8. rusty duck says:

    Marvellous. She’s a real beauty and all the better for being early.

  9. Mine’s is not too far behind, I’m hoping it’s out for bloom day.
    I had no idea of it’s alternative name, thanks for that.

  10. would love to see these when the current snow melts…

    beautiful picture.
    Is this the last of the fall drops or the first of the spring? I prefer to think the latter.

  12. Robbie says:

    Oh my, you never are without a bloom:-) Mine is all brown and quiet….I just walked by a window today + thought, “mighty brown out there” …no snow , yet:-) You live in a place that provides you with lovely flowers all year long!

    • Chloris says:

      Winter flowering plants are really important to me so I seek out as many as possible. When I had a much larger garden I used to have a winter garden which was a delight to me. I am planning one here but as I haven’ t so much room it will have to be on a much smaller scale.

  13. Beautiful snowdrops. News to me that they will bloom in fall.

  14. Gorgeous! I can’t imagine seeing Snowdrops in the fall. Thanks for sharing!

    • Chloris says:

      There are several Autumn flowering snowdrops. My earliest is reginae- olgae in October followed by Barnes in November and this one along with Three Ships for December.

    How dainty and elegant, I love her, makes me yearn for mine in spring.xxx
