Snowdrops and Winter Aconite are two flowers I have photographed this week during a walk.
Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) grow in Winter and early Spring in most of Europe and there are about 20 sub species of this flower. I found these I photographed in an area where I normally expect to find them. Once established they remain and are not easily destroyed by natural causes.
Winter Aconite (Eranthis hyemalis) are one of the first to flower usually in January in mild climates. They grow in Europe, Asia and Japan and there are about 8 sub species. Again I found these where I would normally expect to find them on the edge of woodland, in fact more than in the past.
