I made a 27 min video of about 50 snowdrop cultivars I grow (many common or older cultivars), and made subtitles in English ...

Thank you for this lovely video Leena.  Really beautiful snowdrops.
And so many honeybees! There must be hives (and maybe a beekeeper) nearby.

What is the little trillium beside your 'Glenorma', and the colchicum near the first 'Trinity' you showed?

I also enjoyed hearing some 'horticultural' Finnish (rare here in Ireland), as well as the wonderful birdsong & woodpecker drumming.

We have wondered about honeybees, because we don't know any hives nearby, but I guess they can fly quite a ways when they find something they like, and now crocuses and snowdrops provide food more in my garden than they can find elsewhere. Even native willows and Tussilago farfara are not yet flowering, but Hepaticas are in a warm spot.

Trillium beside 'Glenorma' is Trillium nivale, and near the first 'Trinity' is Colchicum bulbocodium. Near 'Wendy's Gold' closer to the end of the video was Colchicum szovitsii, I don't remember if it showed.

We have lots of birds in the garden, and I love this time of year for their song.

Oh! I thought it was a Trillium pusillum.

I once sowed T.pusillum, but the seedlings died in a bad winter. I don't know if it should be hardy here.
Trillium-book says that it starts to flower when T.nivale ends.

Here is 'Glenorma' with T.nivale, and more on the left. :)



When 'Glenorma' is big, 'Wifi Big Bang' is huge, compare it to Eranthis and Crocus. It is also quite leafy plant, at least now in the end of flowering.
