Early Spring Flowers

Eye spy the first snowdrop of the year before the last rose is frozen to death.

The snow and exceptionally cold snap has delayed the first snowdrops, but, this weekend, I spotted the first snowdrops peeping through the soil. I love the way they suddenly just appear. You hardly have time to notice the leaves before they are in bloom.

Another great early spring flower is the yellow aconite. A low growing bulb, this looks great in mass planting and creates a great foil to the white snowdrops.
