Thank you Ashley and Stefan, I'm happy you enjoyed it even though I only spoke Finnish.
The snowdrops which were still flowering were not up early when the bad weather came again.
I thought cold is now over, but today the forecast said it will be again 7 degrees colder than usual next week and even snow one night!
And it is May.

Close to the end of the video I showed a double snowdrop, possibly a seedling.
In that side of the bed I have never planted any double snowdrops though I have several close by (Flore Pleno, Barbara's Double, Flocon de Neige, and across the path Ailwyn).
In that spot I had 'E.A.Bowles' which sadly vanished one winter, but it had produced self sown seedlings which I showed. They are all single plicatus two earlier flowering ones and one later.
This double has also some plicate leaves.
My question is, is there a named double snowdrop like this (which I haven't bought but perhaps I had gotten the wrong plant, though I really don't think I have planted anything just there), or could this be a seedling from 'E.A.Bowles'?

Two days ago I took a long video (33 min) from my most floriferous place in the garden right now.
There are still snowdrops flowering and crocuses. At the same time Corydalis and Hepatica are also flowering.
Sorry, no English translation, but I have written the names of the plants in the video.

Leena, beautiful spring garden with a lot of botanical treasures. Thanks for showing!
Your Hepatica’s are growing well! I am surprised that japonica’s and pubescens also are growing well in your garden, probably because of snowcovering in winter.

A wonderful presentation of Your glorious spring-garden, Leena! Its so colourful - in our part of the world hepatica and larkspurs, for example, start flowering at the end of the snowdrop-season. Your climate provides advantages one might envy You for.  :)
