had to look it up...i'm not, but wouldn't mind being one.
But there may be a danger of you becoming a galanthomaniac Cathy! See my PS on the post....
enjoyed the link. glad they mentioned tulip fever in Holland in the 1600s. I read an interesting book - fiction - called Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach where the tulip trade was an integral part of the story.
This reminds me of the Cottingley fairies hoax back in 1917 - caused quite a stir.
I think this is the real thing though!
Stunning last photo. Love the lighting.
i love flowers under a lamp.
My chum in Kerala sent me the link this morning. He must miss snowdrops despite the fact that he can grow mangoes!
i would miss snowdrops too. I hope you're getting better.
Well wouldn't that be a thing. Pink snowdrops. Someone would undoubtedly pay £2000 for it but I think I prefer the white!
I'm on the slippery slope. Only six 'specials' so far. But expensive mouse food nevertheless.
Take care on the slippery slope. Enjoy your specials while you may Jessica.
I had been wondering about your pink tinged snowdrops! And on the topic of new varieties, how is Rosa Freda Anne? (Have I got that right?)
I've had no luck with cuttings from Rosa Freda Anne Lotta, nor with Chrysanthemum spectabile Cecila I'm sad to say. I fear I may be losing my touch! Plan to keep trying though.
Forgot to say I was watching snowdrops opening in slow motion on YouTube yesterday... If you search for time lapse snowdrops there are quite a few.
I watched them open under the lamp! It was beautiful.
A meditation... :-)
Gorgeous photos..and i enjoyed the link....now imagining you watching them open, freda...that is truly a remarkable thing to have witnessed!
They almost 'popped' in the warmth of the room and the lamp!
