Snowdrops are the wonderful winter blooms that last through the dark season.
Their January promise pulls me outside again & again to delight in their tenaciousness. Each year I plant more bulbs around our garden to extend seasonal interest. In my dreams I imagine a meadow like the one Dad & I just came across in real life.
Originally home to a tea house, but better know as Maltwood Manor estate, it’s no wonder the attached garry oak meadow inspired art.
Now I’m curious to see the seasonal progression of this meadow. What other bulbs are planted here? Do any of the native wildflowers of the garry oak ecosystem remain? And – – what’s the name of that cat who so obviously enjoys this garden??
P.S. Here’s some other meadow faves:
