A pretty litle bulb which flowers at this time of
the year is Leucojum vernum, the Spring Snowflake. It is quite low growing, and has green strap-shaped leaves. The small white bell-shaped flowers have lovely
green blotches on the tips of each petal, like a little dab of green paint! I also have Leucojum aestivum, the Summer Snowflake, but this is much taller, and
flowers later on in the year.
