    Colesbourne Park in Gloucestershire, was the home of Henry Elwes, who found Galanthus elwesii growing in Western Turkey in 1874. It is still in the Elwes family.
    The garden is open to the public on a few weekends in spring, just to see the snowdrops. It is acknowledged to be one of finest snowdrop gardens in Britain.See more here....

    beautiful!! thanks for posting about it, luddite!!

    love the daff's, blake!! i had some all-white ones that i never got planted last year...really should look for them to see if they're budding up as i'll get them planted if they are. i also got some hyacinth last fall - only got half the bag planted and found the rest budding up, so i planted them the other day...
     
  4. After watching 148 inches of snow accumulate in our region this winter season, it was a joy to look out the laundry room window this morning and see patches of color scattered among the winter debris in the flower beds. Further examination revealed that the pussy willow bushes were in bloom too.

    All of the photographs are fabulous. It's been a long winter, it seems.
