Snowdrops

Snowdrops are in full flower, bringing colour to our gardens and lifting our spirits. Last year I did a blog on snowdrops which you can read here: snowdrops spreading wee bit of joy in the grip of winter. This year I thought I'd share some photographs I took this week of my snowdrops. When I lifted plants to bring with us when we moved last year, I managed to get some of each snowdrop I had, appart from G. 'Lady Elphinstone' which I couldn't find. But I know where I can get a few new bulbs.

Earlier this week I decided to pick one flower of each variety and do some photography with them. These are the results, the close ups are taken with the macro lens which I love using.
