I noticed these snowdrops blooming a few weeks ago before the two nor’easters hit. I meant to get a photo one day, they next they were buried under two feet of snow. I’ve been patiently waiting for them to be uncovered.

Snowdrops are wonderful, not just because they are beautiful little flowers, but because they bloom so early in the year. They are the first things to appear and show signs of life in my northern garden. I definitely have plans to get more varieties of these beauties to add for late winter interest.

What’s the first thing to bloom in your garden?

    I feel bad even talking about what’s been blooming in my garden! *whispers* my tomatoes are blooming. ;)

    As for the first thing this year, it was probably some bulbs out in the ROW.

    Susy, the first thing that blooms for me is the Crocus and Daffodils. Then not far behind come the hyacinth and tulips. Then after that the Peonies and Lilacs. By then we are into June for Nebraska and lots of things are blooming. Nebraska is a great place to live and garden.

    Have a great day in the blooming garden.
