Thanks to Mark for sorting out my photos.
There seems to be a good number of people
viewing them.

I really do recommend a visit to Anglesey Abbey.
I think at the moment there is no snow on the ground, so
it is a good time to go.

If you think you may not see many different snowdrops,
the National Trust say there are now 227 different
snowdrop varieties growing there
, which must make it
one of the largest collections of snowdrops in the world
and the labelled displays in the entrance hall are usually very good.

 Re: Martin's comment about Pic 3
    in the Anglesey Abbey display photos

  I notice there is a question mark after the name on the label.
  So, whoever wrote the label out must have been unsure of
  the variety ( possibly the label was written out well before flowering ).

Isn't that a pot of 'Magnet' in pic no. 3, labelled 'Ginn's Imerati ?'
The question mark would indicate there was doubt in the label so perhaps not a label transposition?
