Good trip with good company and to see the lovely G.platyphyllus and G.shaoricus in the wild is a great treat.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

Thank you to everyone for their comments.  Welcome to Susan W who I seemingly tempted into making her first post on this forum. Ashley, all the Galanthus platyphyllus I saw had green leaves so I think it unlikely that your glaucous seedlings are correct.  That's a great pity because platyphyllus is a fantastic snowdrop that should be much more widely grown if it can be adapted to low-altitude conditions.   
Almost in Scotland.

Very enjoyable, and hugely enviable! Really nice to see examples of snowdrops in the wild.
