Snowdrops are the first flowers of the year

That time of year again. It is great to be outside weeding and pruning in the shrubbery whist the snowdrops are pushing their heads above the ground. it will soon be February which marks the beginning of the SnowdropFestival in Scotland. Did you know the Scientific name for Galanthus means milk flower. These lovely flowers are among the first to raise their heads in the New Year, when it is warm they release a fragrance. Look carefully at the snowdrops to see their green markings on the inside.
Cosses Country House has created a woodland trail with information about all there is to see. The shrubbery, woodland and pond are covered with blankets of white snowdrops.
