Snowdrop spotting January 27, 2021

Snowdrops are in flower between January and March, they seem to start a little earlier each year.

Last week we had an early sighting of them in the Winter Garden (22 January) and looking through records over the years, we have several varieties.

Why not look out for snowdrops on your daily exercise and see if you can identify which variety you have found.
