Beautiful snowdrops

I love snowdrops for their bravery and persistence in flowering at this time of year. They look so delicate, but in fact have buds that can force themselves up through the most difficult of soils. The one in my hand, above, is one of a few gorgeous double flowers I have, both in pots and (a rather small clump) in the border.

This photo shows the clump I have in a pot and I featured them in a post in January. Here they are today, some in flower and most nearly ready to lift my spirits with the thought that Spring is on the way.
