A taste of spring, thanx!  My snowdrops are buried under (imagine this) snow!  cheesy  They will poke up around mid-February.  Hopefully the girls will be alive to enjoy them in early spring!

I've got hundreds of them. They have become invasive acroos my lawn and even grow through edge of driveway asphalt. Roundup doesn't hurt them much either, just slow most down.

Well, I can't imagine trying to control them, or the need to, they come, they blossom, their foliage is gone before the grass greens up - mine have multiplied nicely.  I can't imagine poisoning them.  Then again, I never use Roundup at all on anything but poison ivy, and only then if I can't pull the plant and get rid of it that way.

Egehan.  Some very pretty pictures.  My snowdrops won't be up for awhile yet either, they bloom around the middle of February too, but may be later this year, we will see.  Thanks for putting that awesome shot here for us to look at.  Have an awesome day, Cindi

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Normally I would  agree. Thay are destroying brick pathway and edge of driveway and choke out other bulb plants that bloom at same time. In my lawn, I just mow them after they bloom, elsewhere its war! I used to transplant, but I couldn't keep up. Squirrells also transplant them in veggie garden .
