It is an exciting time of the year isn't it!  Lovely to see Galanthus 'Lapwing' too, I think it might have to be my Desert Island snowdrop - not that it would last long there!

'Lapwing' is really lovely - recently arrived from another good pal, Brian. I'm very pleased to have it.

Garden's looking great Ian. I love your natural style planting and it shows you eye for design and form. Looks a shambles though when I try it!

I'm inclined to agree with you, Alan!   I seem to remember saying the same when it was named!

I loved cartoons when I was young and I still hold a great affection for the ones I enjoyed then.  Although as basic images they are quite similar, 'Droopy', the dog on the left in my previous post, was renowned for looking miserable even when avowedly happy.  'Snoopy' on the right, although capable of showing a wide range of emotions, was generally a happy dog with a smile on his face.  To see a snowdrop with such a miserable-looking 'face' named as 'Snoopy' feels like having a dear old friend maligned.  So it's one that will never grace my collection.  Sorry, Ian, the Christie kind.

Thank you Ian again. It is such a pleasure to see pictures of your garden, I can't express in words how much I enjoy them, and your garden is so inspiration to me.

Hello Ian
A great Bulb Log as usual and some interesting comments in respect of Trillium seed .

I don't think I've ever observed underground germination of Trillium seed occurring at the same time as the parent plants are flowering and although some years I get a very small number of Western T. sps seeds in a very small number of pots germinate in early summer ,(December), at that time similar parent plants are already starting to form seed in the garden.

The bulk root and subsequent rhizome activity here is mid to late summer and early autumn and so as a matter of interest I like to check ungerminated seed pots more frequently ,(weekly), during this period .
 
Here's a couple of pics I took today.

T. chloropetalum seed that germinated end of January this year showing rhizome and root development on a couple of seeds .

Single seed of T. ovatum forma maculosum  :D that has germinated in the last week ...
 You can just about make out the swelling where the rhizome will quickly become more apparent although it will be rather small when the first leaves appear in spring.
