snowdrops

More spring bulbs. This time, from Ann Burlingham, in her own garden (in upstate New York):

 

From Wikipedia:

Galanthus (Snowdrop; Greek gála “milk”, ánthos “flower”) is a small genus of about 20 species of bulbous herbaceous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, subfamily Amaryllidoideae. Most flower in winter, before the vernal equinox (20 or 21 March in the Northern Hemisphere), but certain species flower in early spring and late autumn.

Earlier postings on spring bulbs: on star-of-Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum) and on glory-of-the-snow (Chionodoxa).
