I was delighted to discover them on 7th January in Princes’ Street Gardens, Edinburgh. This is undoubtedly the earliest I have ever seen snowdrops in flower, and they made a very welcome sight.
Have you seen any snowdrops yet? Do you know of any places where they make a beautiful snowy carpet? I’d love to hear from you!
