Last Monday I picked a lone snowdrop to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I put it in this shamrock tea cup that I inherited when Mark's mother died, along with the matching handkerchief. I added some chunks of moss that the squirrels had dug up and flung into the midst of the snowdrops. This Monday, my Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno' are up in full force but I found the single flower so appealing that I recreated the arrangement again.
Temps are going to be colder this week with possible snow today and then rain for the next few days. But none of that will slow down the snowdrops now that they've started. And my three new varieties should arrive this week "in the green" from Carolyn's Shade Gardens on the East Coast. To see what gardeners elsewhere have put into a vase today, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who hosts this wonderful weekly meme.
