61/365: A year in flowers: snowdrops

They're late this year but the snowdrops and crocii are now flowering profusely in the lovely garden at work.
Snowdrops hold a particular place in my heart, not just because they're one of the first harbingers of spring but because when I was a child, I spent my pocket money on some snowdrops for my mum and she always remembers that.

I've tried to plant them in the garden but they are notoriously difficult. Don't ever buy them as seeds or plants at any other time of the year except now: you have to buy them "in the green" and they will be available now.
