Snowdrops

Despite the misty grey day, our trip to Newark Park was very enjoyable and the drifts of Snowdrops were at their peak.
Galanthus or Snowdrops are a native of Europe and were said to have been brought here by the Romans but may have not have been introduced until much later. Twenty species snowdrop have been identified and we are lucky to have quite a few different ones in our woodland garden but were tempted to buy a pot of one of the larger varieties on sale.
