Snowdrops

Galanthus (probably nivalis)

Description:

Spring is finally starting to show its beautiful self here in Michigan and these flowers are a sure sign. Snowdrops are small plants with beautiful little white flowers that will even bloom through a snow bank. These are just starting to grow and have not yet bloomed. Next to them is crocus (the other sign of spring).

Habitat:

In the garden in partial-shade. It was a gloomy day today, cold and with little sun.

Notes:

These were not planted by me. These hardy little guys came up one year after we removed a large evergreen bush away from our house, they were apparently underneath the bush and had been for years. Once we removed it, they sprung up and have every year for years now. I will continue to add to these as they bloom.
