• A Growing Population

    Unlike Snowdrop Valley, I can’t claim to have an entire valley carpeted with blooms, but I do have more each year. The very first in flower is a clump of S.Arnott at the foot of the mulberry tree. It surprises me every year because I forget that I planted them there several years ago. When the sun comes out the flowers open right out with the petals folding back like wings.  Wonderful.
