04/03/19 - Snowdrop Update - Ok, most of the snowdrops came and went very quickly over the last two weeks but I haven’t posted pics for most of them yet. So just imagine it’s still February for a bit 🙄, 'Blonde Inge' is an unusual but recognisable one as it’s a yellow one, but it has retained a green ovary, where as many of the other yellows have a yellowish ovary too. Counted four flowers this year 👏🏼👏🏼

Galanthus ‘Blonde Inge’ - has a green ovary but yellow blonde inner petal markings. It’s not quite open yet but you can see it coming through (there’s a pic from last year or year before) if your scroll back through) #galanthus #galanthusblondinge #snowdrops

There are a few around @Kathy, but as @tiggrx suggests they can a bit expensive. This one wasn't too bad, £12 for a pot. I have to confess I went spent a little more on another one (called Wendy's Gold, which has a yellow ovary) but I see it as an investment for the garden. I have what I want for now, well maybe till next year anyway 😂
