In 2008 my son Jim introduced my daughter Jean and a few snowdrops (Galanthus species and hybrids, Zones 3–8) from his backyard in New Jersey. It was our favourite vacation present. The custom has continued and every winter we obtain a bucket stuffed with snowdrops that we hold to get pleasure from inside. In early spring, when the bottom thaws in Maine, we plant them outdoors in our backyard. The snowdrops multiplied shortly; extras have been shared with buddies. This 12 months I’m giving them to the neighbors. I look ahead to our small neighborhood in Brunswick, Maine, quickly to return alive with snowdrops, bringing magnificence and pleasure to neighbors younger and previous – and meals to hungry bees awakening from their lengthy winter relaxation.
