Some snowdrops from my garden.
'Gerard Parker' two days ago, and today all the snow has melted around it.
'Copton Trym'
G.trojanus grown from seed
Poculiform G.nivalis I got last summer:)
In the last picture is a tiny snowdrop called Tuuliku 8. It was bought ten years ago from Sulev Savisaar, who had gotten some of Taavi Tuuliks snowdrops.

Thank you Mariette. :)
Tuuliku 8 is very tiny, but the colour is different from other yellows I have, so I like it, too.

G.trojanus is grown from Holubeck seeds  sown in December 2015, and three seeds germinated.

Some pictures from Spring 2021. At some point, going to have mixed meadow of Spring flowers in my lower woods. They do look great growing together. Seeds that I had collected.

That's an excellent crop of Galanthus seed, Guff - your lovely bulb garden is destined for  even greater things!

Maggi, thanks.

Years ago, started out with maybe 15 Snowdrop seed pods, that were collected and planted on. Each year I would start a new bed with the seeds that were collected. Now I'm getting to the point, where I can make some real progress on a mixed Spring meadow.

It amazes me as to what can be achieved with focus and dedication, and of course the right climatic conditions and location.
Must be satisfying to gaze across a field of snow drops that you have generated from such small numbers.
Are you seeing any variations popping up with successive generations?

Jeff, thanks.

There are some that look different, but not sure how unique they are.
