A Snowdrop does not give up!


For over a month they are flowering. Snowdrops! The species that I grow flower every year. And they are becoming more and more.

Weathering does not bother them. When the sun is shining, the flowers are open wide. The flowers hovers above the ground, they look like little helicopters. But when it freezes a few days later, the snowdrops are lying motionless on the ground. They seem to be lost, but at the moment the temperature is above zero, the flower is established. A Snowdrop does not give up!

The other day, there was some snow in Zeeland. The snowdrops were standing into the snowy earth and every flower had a white hat. But a snowdrop does not give up and blooms on!

To fully enjoy these flowers I dig a nice clump of snowdrops out of the border. I plant them in a pot and place them on the garden table near the kitchen window. Even this brutal distortion does not bother them. A snowdrop does not give up and blooms on!

Later, when they have finished flowering, I will divide the clump and replant the bulbs in the border. They will grow in the coming years to a new clump. Because no matter what happens; a snowdrop does not give up.

Snowdrops, they look like frail flowers on thin stems. But in reality they are very tough and NEVER give up!
