Snowdrops Postscript

I checked my favourite Snowdrop colony at Stretford again today - and they've appeared! I spoke too soon! I think that their flowering may have been delayed by the cold weather that we've been experiencing lately. I also think that the site may be exceptionally cold. I found another small clump, about a mile away, which was much more advanced and the flowers fully open. This second clump was at the base of a low wall which probably retains heat and is intrinsically warmer.

Still, I'm happy that my Stretford Snowdrops are still there and all's right with the world!
