Have I Seen Snowdrops in February?

Last Sunday we took a brisk walk around the block after dinner. As we approached our place, I saw a touch of green and white.

A snowdrop! In Madison, they bloom in March. The earliest date I have on my calendar for them is March 6, 2020! The photo above was taken February 19.

However, nature called a do over; more snow has fallen. February 24, the ground looks like this:

The snowdrops are ready and waiting for the next thaw and burst of sun. How do I record this on the calendar?

Any blooms indoors or outdoors where you live?

  1. This is snowdrop central here. We have thousands and thousands within 5 minutes of our house. A single footfall in the wrong place would squash two dozen or more. The first appearance this year was on January 7th. They are just past their best, and I think will be gone in under a fortnight now. They’re such a wonderful addition to the yearly round.

  2. Apost from another Madisonian on 2/12/23. “Front yard. These are the daffies I buried under leaves prior to the last deep freeze and 8″ snowfall. About 2.5-3”
