Friday Flowers: Snowdrops
Snowdrops are winter flowers which bloom before March equinox in the northern hemisphere. I don't remember seeing them and this year I asked my Facebook friends for leads on finding some. We have had exceptionally warm weather in March and the snow was pretty much gone by last weekend. While we have enjoyed sunny days, the nights have not been cold enough for the maple trees and sap runs are very low this year. I hoped I was not too late in searching for these early flowers.
My friend Cheryl let me know that a house in her neighbourhood had Snowdrops in bloom in the borders. I stopped by yesterday and the flower beds at the front and side of the corner property were covered in dainty white blooms. I really have to remember to get some bulbs in the fall and plant them in my garden!
