More signs of Spring.... WOOHOO!

This is Leucojum vernum (aka the Spring Snowflake . Its a bit like a cross between a snowdrop and a lily of the valley and some anabolic steroids - they are about 30cm tall). I gave my mum a load of of them when we reworked our garden a few years ago. Hers are now in bloom as you can see here. Ours have still to get their act together, sadly

We saw the same type on Saturday in a garden/park here in Houston! Never seen them before and thought them very cute. One of the few things without a label in this garden, so I am glad you can tell me what they are.
Will show some pics from our garden visit later to show the state of our spring. I won't be so smug in a month or two when the heat and humidity is upon us. ..

I am looking forward to seeing them Cecilia. It's nice to see the garden gradually coming back to life.
