Fantastic shot! I saw lots of these last weekend at Howick Hall when I went to their annual snowdrop walk. Wonderful to see huge drifts of bulbs..

Thanks. This one seems to be drifting where it doesn't belong. lol. I kinda prefer large drifts of bulbs where you can admire from a distance as well as up close. Did Howick Hall have a good snowdrop show?

Oh it was a beautiful day at Howick Hall. My sister (Galanthophile) had never been to the garden during the annual snowdrop weekend so it was a lovely garden visit for us both (especially since I came back from the US and can do this with her again).
It was an unexpectedly warm, bright day so the flowers looked perfect. Here are a couple of photos.

Oh that looks beautiful! Great pics and that's the way to see Snowdrops - large drifts. Thanks for sharing.
