Galanthus (Snowdrop; Greek gála “milk”, ánthos “flower”) is a small genus of about 20 species of bulbous herbaceous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, subfamily Amaryllidoideae.1 Most flower in winter, before the vernal equinox (20 or 21 March in the Northern Hemisphere), but certain species flower in early spring and late autumn. from Wikipedia
These snowdrops greeted me when I arrived at our cottage! I had never looked “under the hood” before! Who knew they were green under there! What a nice surprise! These flowers were growing on the Bruce Peninsula near Wiarton, Ontario, Canada.

    These are beautiful flowers, I’ve never seen them before! Nice find.

  • They are bulbs. I have had them for years. They grow with their heads hanging down. I honestly had never looked underneath before! Nice surprise! Glad you like them!

    What a lovely picture Rosemary, a fave for me. That wall is up the Spencer St. end and is not on the gambling floor, it divides rooms where people can have a rest or drink, several of them and they all have a different shape. Shirley

  • Thanks, Shirley! I was surprised that it looks 3 dimensional when printed off! I am pleased with it. Glad you like it, too!
