Plant of the Week

Leucojum vernum:

 The spring snow flake is one of the most cheerful plants to see, pushing its head up in early February and oblivious to the filthy weather around it.  It is often confused at a distance with a snow drop, though on closer inspection it is clear that it is quite a different character altogether.  In this mild winter, the ones in the photograph have been flowering in the wild garden at Gravetye for some time now, with some very early and slightly confused daffodils.  A taster of the spring to come and very welcome it will be, too!
