Season goes on. Here is a little flower, looking like an autumn TRYM.

Oh Hagen, how nice to see a Trym type in the autumn.  What a wonderful development.

Very nice Hagen. 

I've just had a look in the garden and I can see a nose on 'Barnes' so looks like my snowdrop season isn't too far away.   ;D

Hello friends, this nice galanthus was a good opener for the October topic.
And it looks only like a Trym.
But it`s an absolutely problem plant :-[

Sadly the nicest ones are often a problem to cultivate :-\

As JohnW would say....  Lovely tiny blotches in that second photo Tony    ;)

I am with Davey on thinking that is a nice looking flower.

If only these really early ones could be grown without a greenhouse/frame and might stay alive in my garden.  Anything here has to cope with the elements.

yes the markings seem stable as I have several off sets and they are all the same. I like the shape of the flower.

Tony, here is a big and globular flower. But the apical mark is normal.
