Spring Snowdrops

Spring doesn’t officially begin for another three weeks, but at my Bedford, New York farm, signs of the coming season are emerging more every day.

Among the first bulbs to bloom this time of year are the snowdrops, Galanthus. Snowdrops are not only beautiful, but easy to grow. With buds like alabaster pearls dangling from gently arched stems, these delicate flowers make wonderful additions to many woodland gardens and landscapes. And, if you love gardening as much as I do, these charming white blossoms are always a welcome sight against the brown earth of winter.
