  1. Beautiful! A touch of magic.

    Very pretty indeed!

    • Cathy says:

      Aren’t they just?! And like you, I keep on dividing them. The last two pictures and the right foreground of the first picture show areas that I only started planting up in the last couple of years. I have also begun planting some next to the new path in the woodland

    How impressive – a lovely Spring garden.

  4. Heyjude says:

    Wow! What a lot of snowdrops 😊

    • Cathy says:

      I probably only started with a couple of hundred bulbs, and a few handfuls from an acquaintance, but keep dividing them every year. And of course I can generously give clumps to friends myself now too

    Looks like Spring is here.

    • Cathy says:

      It’s looking that way, and it doesn’t take much extra warmth either. ps I have realised that the card you sent is handpainted…you are so talented!!

    It is so exciting to see more of your garden goodies coming to life. Thanks for sharing the awakening beauty that surrounds you ~ FlowerLady

    • Cathy says:

      Reducing the resolution of photos doesn’t show borders like these at their best, as in real life the snowdrops look absolutely wonderful bobbing about in the sunshine

  7. Oh my goodness! What a beautiful collection. Thank you for sharing!

  8. Kris P says:

    Your snowdrops are beautiful, Cathy! If I could grow them, I can think of several areas that would be peppered with the bulbs.

    • Cathy says:

      It is lovely to see them in quantity like this, and they respond readily to regular dividing, as well as seeding too. Just enjoy the lovely flowers you can grow instead, Kris!

    Great planting of snowdrops, Kathy

  10. Cathy says:

    I bet it does your soul good to see all those lovely flowers. Beautiful show!

    • Cathy says:

      It really does, Cathy – and when the sun shines as has done a lot this week they bob around delightfully, and I have been doing a lot of standing and staring this week

  11. Cathy your snowdrops are magnificent, wonderful, divine, I love them. And in that huge abundance they are a magical cloak that when swaying with the gentle wind must be something of the fairies that move them: I love it. No wonder you stand looking at them for moments: I would sit for up to an hour looking at them spellbound. Enjoy them. And she continues to divide them so that each year you have more such special bluebells. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.

    Oh what delicious little white gems. A wonderful spread Cathy!
