Snowdrops in CupWe followed the cutest little boy into school the other day. Trailing a short distance behind his Mum and brothers, he was walking very slowly as he concentrated hard on carrying a tiny vase filled with snowdrops: a gift for his nursery teacher.

Inspired by this sweet gesture, I picked a few from the swathe that blanket one part of our lawn so that we can briefly enjoy them up close before they fade away.

I’m no expert, but a quick bit of research on the RHS website suggests that these might be the common snowdrop, or Galanthus nivalis. Either which way, they are incredibly pretty and I plan to divide them up whilst they’re still in the green so that we can admire their nodding white heads elsewhere in the garden next Spring.
