In a Vase, On Monday – Galanthus

I think I’ve been posting nothing but snowdrops this year. For good reason, I suppose, since there’s been nothing else yet in bloom (although I have spotted the odd Crocus). Narcissus within a few weeks, I’m hoping! Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden encourages us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens. I think this little bud/bulb vessel was made for Snowdrops!

It rained most of yesterday…
Taken indoors, with my mobile looking up.

  1. I love that ‘little vase’, Chris. I have several bunches of snowdrops up and they are looking rather lonely but I guess they’re used to it.

  2. Quite a quirky vase but it doesn’t detract from the wonderful beauty of those snowdrops. I am sure your garden will spring into life very quickly, now the days are getting longer.

    1. I love the vase as well – I have four of them, purchased many years ago at a now closed shop in Toronto. I suspect they were intended to sit at each person’s place, around a dinner/lunch table…

  3. Ah, finally, someone featured snowdrops as more than an accessory. Okay, so I still do not understand their allure, but they do happen to be white (my favorite color), and everyone else really digs them. Last year, everyone was talking about them. I intend to eventually grow a few (only a few) of the straight species (if I can find them when I get around to growing them), to see what all the fuss is about. So far, I grow only snowflake (which we know as snowdrops). As you know, it is not the same.

  4. I adore that vase! I enjoy seeing snowdrops, something that I have no hope of growing. We seem to have suddenly jumped forward into summer over the past couple of days which, although it may sound wonderful to those in colder climates, isn’t a good thing.

    1. I totally agree! We often seem to have no spring at all, to speak of, but jump from snow to 20 + degrees…hope that’s not the case this year (snow flurries tonight, but who knows about next week!)
