THE SNOWDROP AESTHETIC… fashion inspired by snowdrops and bees.
Plant of the Day
Thursday 11 February 2016
A woodland full of naturalised Galanthus nivalis f. pleniflorus ‘Flore Pleno’ (double snowdrop) at Marks Hall Arboretum, Essex, U.K. This small bulbous perennial has narrow, grey-green leaves and solitary, nodding, fragrant, double white flowers. It grows well in humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil that does not dry out in summer, so a woodland is ideal.
Captured this scene just as the sun was slipping down below the treeline. Wanted to savor all these beauties since the season’s first frost is near. So far it’s only glanced us… flower on guys … flower on !!!
