WW: Snowdrops

I’m seeing Snowdrops everywhere, and I love them! I took this photograph last week, whilst on one of our road trips.  This is for Wordless Tues/Wednesday. For other participants click here.

Update: Many of you tell me you hadn’t seen or heard of Snowdrops before.   We get them in the cold weather just before the Spring flowers come out.  They are wild flowers, and are usually seen in sheltered places ‘like a carpet’ along with yellow and purple crocuses.  Really lovely, tiny little flowers all of them.

    :cool: Alison, I’m glad you are still WW’ing. I like your snowdrops. I don’t think we have them around here.
    My WW is up but I didn’t visit around yesterday. It isn’t very outstanding, I am more proud of my regular blog post [ http://jimmiehov.blogspot.com/ ] for yesterday.
    Not much reading, but I did want to come check on you today. I have been snowed under doing taxes for my deceased Dad’s stuff. He died this March.

    Now, I fully understood about what is snow drops, ths furr sharing. Coz’ I live in Indonesia, never experience winter and spring. I joined a group and they talked a lot about snow drops, since I was newbie, I thought that it was really a snow taht drops from the sky. It turned out that this is a kind of flower, not real snow!

    cheerz,
