Galanthus November
« on: November 02, 2012, 12:54:16 PM »
Here the Galanthus reginae-olgae ssp reginae-olgae I collected in Sicily starts flowering
later as normal
I forgot to water them (buzzy with the plant-shows)
so they kept sleeping
the good part I can see them flowering now
shows are over , but with a final surprise on the Saturday morning
It started SNOWING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brrr.  That first pic has made me feel cold!

I can see white emerging from between green leaves here - so hopefully should have my first snowdrops of the season within weeks.

Fantastic one Melvin
Here the first Galanthus peshmenii is just popping out of the soil
I wonder how many survived last winter
but I am afraid I lost a lot  :'(

All lovely, Ian, but the markings on 'Alexandra' are particularly nice, I think.
