Maude's Snowdrops

I visited my friend, Maude, in her garden yesterday. Her drifts of snowdrops were near peak. I will make some notes this week about where in my garden I want to plant snowdrops next autumn.

Wave Hill's Chionodoxa are Back and So Am I

I have been on hiatus from blogging but a recent visit to Wave Hill in the Bronx during peak Chionodoxa sardensis season has inspired me to return. I was at lecture by Luciano Giubbilei at the New York Botanical Garden today and took a detour to nearby Wave Hill to see the drifts of glory-in-the-snow on the slope of the Abrons Woodland. The beautiful blue minor bulb has naturalized in the woodland as well as in the lawn under large trees and even in the Flower Garden. I hope my own woodland garden might get the blues this badly one day.
