Galanthus 'Happy New Year' opened its flowers on the first day of January. I was so exited. These are the very first snowdrops to flower in my garden this year.
I bought the bulbs last autumn at the stand of Peter Nijssen. He is a supplier of special bulbs. I’ll admit, I bought these snowdrops just because I liked the name. These snowdrops are in fact a curiosity by themselves. They were first found in a batch of Galanthus elwesii. The bulbs are quite large, the size of a walnut. So you get good value for your money!
To have a snowdrop flowering so early in the season is just wonderful. Hopefully they will multiply quickly.
The other snowdrops I have planted in previous years are showing signs of sprouting, but it will still take some weeks before these will flower.
I think it is a promising start of the gardening season and therefore I would like to say just like my Galanthus:
Happy New Year!

G. 'Happy New Year' has a normal pattern; a single green mark.
But normal is also beautiful.
