Delicate, White Common Snowdrop Wildflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

I was so surprised yesterday when I saw some specks of white in the brush by the side of the road. “The unrivaled harbinger of spring, Snowdrops mark the passing of winter with their elegant white and green bells.”

“Our familiar snowdrops need little description. Growing in tight clumps, their grey-green grassy foliage emerges in late winter and, almost in spite of the low temperatures and dismal days, the flowers follow in February and March. Each pendant bloom is exquisite, with three large, white outer petals surrounding an inner ring of three small petals, each marked with various patterns of green.”

Have you ever seen a Common Snowdrop? Such a delicate flower and so beautiful…

  1. Your timing – February 15, the day AFTER Valentine’s Day – is perfect, according to some! 🙂

    “Everyone looks for the first snowdrop as proof that our part of the earth is once more turning towards the sun, but folklore maintains that we should be wary of bringing them into the house before St Valentine’s Day, as any unmarried females could well remain spinsters!”
