Header Challenge

Header Theme "Snowdrop" was chosen by http://imac-photosfromthemindseye.blogspot.com make sure you check out him and http://thefishingguy.blogspot.com http://womtig.blogspot.com http://meandering-martha.blogspot.com and http://beestonblog.blogspot.com to see their Snowdrops. We don't grow Snowdrops in the South, we grow Snowflakes.
Snowdrops-Galanthus
Have a single flower with three drops of milk hanging from the stem. This accounts for the Latin name Galanthus-- means milk-white flowers. I hope one of the others had a photo opp for the Snowdrops...
Snowflakes-Leucojum aestivum
Have several flowers with pretty little green dots all around the bottom of their skirts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I am Thankful for the things I have learned and continue to learn through blogging.

These are nice Darla, good show my friend.

Leedra said...

Beautiful flowers. I wonder if they are in the Lily of Valley family of flowers.

Yep, we have all learned so much from blogging. Miss it, but don't seem to find enough time in the day right now. I have posted the last couple of days though.

Dani said...

They are such pretty little things! Love the little green spots on the bottoms.

Tom said...

Snowflakes... these are very nice indeed Darla... they reminded me of something else and I was glad to read Leedra's comment as it was Lily of the Valley I was thinking of... net looking header as well...

Darla said...

I believe that Snowdrops and Snowflakes are Amaryllis...pretty sure.

Martha said...

Well now I'll know what they are when I see them! So pretty :-)

Gail's Man said...

Certainly a different variety to what we have in the UK. I wonder if you can get bulbs here.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I love the Snowflakes! I just have Snowflakes too, I didn't realize that Snowdrops wouldn't grow where you are. Good luck in the challenge :)

Susie said...

Pretty Darla! I see you won silver in the contest. Congrats!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Love your pictures, Darla, especially the 3rd one.... That should have been your header. I love the sky in the background.... gorgeous!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Lew said...

Beautiful little flowers! I had never seen them.

Darla: What a neat flower, glad you found a close one.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Pretty little flowers! I've not seen one of those before. They look so delicate.

Dorothy said...

Very nice, Darla! We always looked forward to seeing the Snowdrops bloom and signal that Spring has sprung!.

Dar said...

Darla, Your Galanthus Elwesii or Giant Snowdrop is a beauty all its own. It loves to be set apart from others to show off its distinguishing green tips on its petals and the broad blue green leaves...It sure is a beauty and you have some wonderful photos of it. I used to have these and have long been without and want them again.sad how I lost them..thanks for sharing yet another interesting Gift from God.
Welcome Spring
Bless Your Heart

Darla, they are just so beautiful. They look so much like snowdrops.

George said...

You got some wonderful pictures of the snowflakes. I really like the one you chose for your header.

Becca's Dirt said...

Those are some great photos Darla. You have mastered your camera. I didn't know that.

Dar said...

Roses and Lilacs said...

They remind me a little of Lily of the Valley too. I've never grown them.

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Darla~~ I was in town the other day and saw a clump of blooming Leucojum in a tiny dirt oasis on the opposite side of a busy street. It was all I could do to keep myself from running headlong into traffic, first taking a detour to the nearest hardware store for a modest hand trowel then as stealthily as possible digging the entire clump up for ME.

I resisted. Yours are absolutely beautiful.

Randy Emmitt said...

Darla,

Thanks for pointing out Snow Flakes that I thought were Snow Drops. I corrected it and linked to your blog.
