NATIONAL TRUST: top spots for SNOWDROPS

snowdropAs a Snowdrop lover and blogger, I decided to list you the NT top list of  gardens promising spectacular displays of snowdrops. Hope you’ll enjoy this virtual visit as much as I do.

Matthew Oates,  nature and wildlife expert at National Trust (UK), said:
In the garden, the pinnacles of snowdrop leaves provide the very first sign of spring, often appearing around New Year’s Day. The flowers themselves arrive later in pure white glory and, on mild late winter days, are beloved by honey bees. They are best seen in half-light and, of course, amidst the winter snow.’
