Robin with Snowdrops

It's snowing again at my house and is supposed to turn to rain later. I love this photo by Warren Photographic of an English robin sitting on some snow covered moss with snowdrops nearby. via

I found a large clump of snowdrops near the foundation of my cottage yesterday, very close to my front door. They were newly planted last spring when I found them growing wild in the woods. I think it will be a while before they bloom but it's still exciting to see the spring green shoots. They are right on time too, because it's February.

Is there another name for this flower besides Snowdrops? I'm sure I have these in my backyard, but I live in California.

Lisa -- Snowdrops are also called Galanthus.

Catherine -- You should plant some. They are very hardy and easy to grow from little bulbs. Also called Galanthus.
