March “Snow”

IMG_9263 red

I don’t mind “snow” in March if it’s snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis).


 Their clump, with all the white, make them the most obvious flower in the yard. (I’m ignoring the dandelions.)


 The clump grows among purple violets, dandelions and gill-over-the-ground.

Snowdrops and their bulbs are poisonous to humans and can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

    Love, love…the close-ups!


  2. I never see them. I’m not sure why nobody ever grows them here.


  3. Great shots, do you think they would grow in Tennessee? I would like to get a couple for my moms garden..:-)


    • I’m not sure. We live near the southern tip of Illinois. I think there are a few kinds of them too. There are sources online. They grow from bulbs. Let me know if you don’t have any luck and I could maybe dig a few for you. It is a dense clump.


  4. Lovely.
