Don't Remember Planting These.

Lone Snowdrop

Lone Snowdrop

Had to spend time doing office work this morning so went out for a walk around the garden as it was such a beautiful morning. Was surprised seeing this little lone snowdrop in the bed along the front of the house there are a few others just showing buds cann't remember planting them but they didn't appear by magic. After seeing the articles in Garden Illustrated and reading all the journals on them I will certainly plant them for next year.

Even a single one is beautiful! Passed a garden on my way from a work client today and there was a large white carpet underneath trees. Just breath-taking!

I planted a few in my wilderness area a couple of years ago. No sign of them now, but I did dig over that area last year, so no doubt they will turn up somewhere in the garden in a few years. But I also think that sometimes the birds uproot them, and scatter them elsewhere. The same thing happens to my crocusses. I have them coming up in the grass where I DIDN'T plant them. But it's all good.

One of my Eranthis "migrated" from the front garden to the back - a distance of about 30 metres!
