Beautiful pictures Paddy.  Just the fix I needed being snowed under here in the Cotswolds and getting deeper and deeper after last nights "Snow Bomb" to quote the Daily Mail and still it snows.

'Wind Turbine' looks lovely Jo, and the length of the petals on the seedling is exciting too.

Hi John, the snowdrops are struggling today, the greenhouse is certainly their preferred habitat  :D

Steve, we see the weather reports on BBC and realise we are very fortunate to escape the conditions you are suffering at the moment. Cold here but we spent the day in the garden as it is dry and bright.

Never heard about it, Mark. Where does it come from?

I see that Gardens Illustrated for February had a page on Margaret Owen, nicely advertising her charity opening on Feb 24 11-3, also an article by Matt on collecting snowdrops with a range of portraits of some suggested flowers.

It is a seedling found by Joe Sharman in his collection and originally know by phuk gnoes. Gunter has it in his book on page 127 as 'Phuk' but it was never meant to be named as that.

And a photo of mine and a link to the Galanthus gallery?

Not as far as I know Mark, will look more closely... no I'm afraid you don't feature Mark.

I should have also said there is a very nice article on David and Olive Mason's beautiful garden.

That is good to know Mark.  When I saw just the picture I was slightly disappointed that it was not a more distinctive flower for 'Günter Waldorf'.

But I do so remember hearing that amusing story when I was in Günter's house late one night a couple of years ago while Joe was proof reading the new book - so I can see why it has been chosen - it has certainly managed to put a smile on my face again this afternoon.
