25 minute snowdrop movie
« on: December 23, 2010, 11:30:48 AM »
This link to a 25 minute snowdrop movie was sent to me yesterday by Harry Pierik who lives in Zwolle


Dear Mark,

The passed year I've worked together with a film crew on  a mini documentary on snowdrops in my Hidden City Garden in Zwolle.

Super film. Made up for the blanket of snow outside. I found a version with English subtitles.

   Impressive... and most interesting varieties! Though  Im more "on the wild side" and prefer pure species, I must admit those spidery Galanthus "Pusey Greentips" and "Walrus" blew my mind. Thank you for sharing!

Juan,

You are entering dangerous waters. An interest in snowdrops often develops into an obsession. Be careful!

  Thank you for the advice, Paddy! Ive already entered too many dangerous waters... Do you think Leucojum antidote will work? ;)
  Thank you very much for your offer, but though I like challenges I dont think they will feel very much "at home" in my sea level, warm place ???
