Nowadays there are more than 1500 sorts of snowdrops - we visited snowdrop gardens with about 350 or 250 sorts. I could name some of them, for example "Galanthus nivalis "Penelope Ann" (top right) or "Galanthus Primrose Warburg" (pic in the centre). I own a special German book where the most famous, beautiful snowdrops are depicted. Popular are the snowdrop names of female characters in Shakespeare's plays like Cordelia, Ophelia, Titania or Hippolyta.
This week I'll show some blooms and leaves I saw during my garden tour through Nederland and England.
