Well if they have that kind of money  :o to throw around and it makes 'em happy,

then I say: more power to 'em!  ;D  (and money well spent!)

Congratulations, Ian!

I would have bid but as there was only one for sale and I prefer several in a pot I did not bother.

I hope who ever bought it (my view is if you have the money and want to spend it on that then it is their choice) lets people see  and enjoy it and does not sit and gloat over it in solitary splendor.

The money has gone to a good cause and well done Ian.

A few slightly less valuable snowdrops to bring us down to earth! After the snow and freezing weather it is remarkable how quickly the flowers perk up again, and some of these (in pots) are destined for our local snowdrop event on Sunday. Larger groups in the garden are looking glorious now.

As I thought
The snowdrop is bought by a large company (Thompson & Morgan)
they will try to put it on tissue
and make a million with it probably

Couldn't resist putting this on - a display of snowdrops and a snowdrop cake we made to share with the owner of the garden we were sharing. This picture has been viewed 127 times (!) on the SRGC forum and the event was only four days ago! Snowdrops are all the rage here, and it seems cakes even more!!

Tim, what do all the pictures of drumstick alliums do there? Please the Onion man??

Nice to see all the snowdrops! When I left home about 2 weeks ago all my snowdrops were snowcovered and when I had 1 day at home last Saturday the snow had gone but I hadn't time to take a proper look :(
However I noticed quite a few snowdrops in Norfolk gardens though ;)

Now I am very much looking forward to take a stroll in my garden! I have a lot of snowdrops but don't have the names  - and my camera is damaged too :-\

PS. I would love to have a yellow one but I can't compete with T & M :o :o :o
Anyone having some cheaper ones for sale?

Galanthus plicatus Wendy's Gold is a good one
personnel I find it better as Galanthus woronowii Elizabeth Harrison

Trond - I hadn't thought about that; I hope the alliums do please Mark! No, they are actually small cards to advertise our Kent Hardy Plant Society group which organised the event. The reverse has details of the group's activities.

They had decorated a very nice table anyway  ;)

Wendy's Gold looks very good! Must try to acquire some of those - hope they're not too expensive :-\
