Happy New Year!
May 2012 be a happy and healthy one for you and yours :D
As you can see my annual snowdrop count has commenced early at VP Gardens. I spotted these on December 23rd. They're just ordinary Galanthus nivalis, not one of yer actual early snowdrop cultivars which are meant to bloom the wrong side of Christmas. This is the earliest date I've recorded for my snowdrops - comfortably beating the previous record of 10th January and proving my garden is continuing in its topsy turvy nature from last year*.
Today the snowdrop count stands at 14, though it's set to go at least 100 times that over the next few weeks :)
* come to think of it topsy turvy is actually more normal than normal is ;)
