@kathy - Good morning Kathy! I'm so disappointed with mine! I planted fifty 'in the green' plants a couple of years ago - last year three flowered, this year only two have turned up! 😢

Beautiful 💚 I’ve planted loads over the last three years as well Ian...some bulbs, some in the green and some potted ones. I’ve got 6 or 7 come up in one spot this year 🙄🙈 and a couple in the other border. Better than the two I got last year!

Good evening all! I've been admiring lots of #snowdrop pics on GT this week! However, my own bulbs only just broke the surface earlier this week, so I've raided my photo archive to see what they looked like in 2014! How very impatient of me! 😀
