I was emailing with my neighbor today and I told her that there were probably about 2000 snowdrops in the backyard and 2000 kids running around my house. Okay, I was exaggerating about the kids part – there were only four – but I could have sworn there was a riot happening in the basement. (Important note to self: make sure to dilute sweet fizzy drinks with vodka before serving, otherwise guests get too hyped up).
Snowdrops? I wasn’t really exaggerating (much) about their numbers. There are probably at least 500 of them, or more, scattered throughout the yard, in big patches and small bunches. I think I photographed every single one of them – most of the pictures didn’t turn out that great, but here is one bunch that is growing against one of the raised beds.
