The snowdrops that we planted last year have popped up again to say hello which is very pleasing. From this angle they look quite orchid like. Did you know that snowdrop collectors are called Galanthrophiles? Apparently a single bulb sold for £357 in January beating the previous record of £265. I must confess that our bulbs were of the 99p multi-pack variety and a frenzied bidding war did not take place...to the best of my knowledge.
