Monthly Photo – February 2013

2013_02060051

I have chosen snowdrops to represent February as part of the Monthly Photo challenge hosted by Katarina. 

Whilst I said in my last post that I was interested in learning more about snowdrop varieites I still prefer to see snowdrops planted en masse.  For me snowdrops planted en masse represent February just as much as bluebells en masse represent May.

About Helen Johnstone

I live in Malvern, Worcestershire and am a very keen gardener. I started the Patient Gardener Blog in January 2008 as a way of recording what was happening in my garden and connecting with other like-minded people. I started a second blog PatientGardener 365 January 2013 in order to try and post a photo a day to capture what is growing in my garden or places I have visited

    Like you, I prefer my snowdrops en masse. I hope the bank of snowdrops I started off at the side of the house will spread to form something along the lines of what we saw at Painswick one day. Enjoy your study day – it sounds like an eye level view of your new varieties is needed so you can appreciate their differences :)

    Wow! Can’t quite decide whether it’s April or March that I associate with daffodils.

  4. Gorgeous! I love this picture!

    It all looks so natural, but was presumably planted up in the first place before naturalising – very lovely :)

    I have never been a big snowdrop fan but seeing them growing en masse is inspiring. Lovely.

    Snowdrops are lovely! And when there are lots of them they are awesome!
    Have a nice weekend,
