You are much too kind John,  I went out this morning to take a photo of my clump, sadly it looks like this.  I don't have any other photos myself so perhaps Anne Repnow will kindly post hers?  Maggi is correct in that Joe Sharman and Richard Hobbs found it in snowdrop acre, the old Greatorex plot.  Joe had bulked it up for sale and approached me to say that they would like to name it for me.  I was flabbergasted as I am sure there are others more worthy, however, it appeared in Joe's sales last year so is available.  Even though I say it myself it is a very nice snowdrop and a Norfolk one too!

... and for good measure one of G. 'Seremony' - another new drop from Joe - found in Veronica Cross's garden I believe

Here is another new double from Joe: Galanthus 'Betty Hughes' - who  needed a crutch after recent gales buffeted her. Lovely rounded flower, inners nicely marked and always a long "tooth" in the middle
