It is bitterly cold at the moment and not the sort of weather to linger in the garden getting inspiration for a vase. So I picked a bunch of snowdrops.
They are not any of my special ones; just the ordinary double Galanthus nivalis f.pleniflorus ‘Flore Pleno’.
I had never noticed until I picked this bunch, that they have a slight honey smell when you bring them inside.
The great thing about a garden that is several hundred years old is that there are pools of snowdrops which have been spreading for years and years. Some are single and some even have green tips, and in other parts of the garden there are these double ones.
I arranged them, or rather, plonked them in a pretty pink Medina Glass vase. I love the little dabs of white that look like snowflakes.
Do go over to Cathy at Ramblinginthegarden to see her vase and to find out what other people have found to put in their vases . Thank you as usual for hosting this meme Cathy.
Jason at Gardeninacity has shown us a beautiful Northern Cardinal eating peanuts in his recent post. We do not have these beautiful birds in this country, but as I write, the blue tits are enjoying the peanuts here too. They are a delight to watch.
