Galanthus 'Elworthy Bumblebee' and Galanthus 'Bungee'

Galanthus 'Elworthy Bumblebee' is one of those smaller snowdrops best viewed on the display stand for with its reflexed outer petals revealing pretty markings, and a healthy imagination, it could be mistaken for a bee in the middle of winter. Or maybe not. It is nevertheless a bonny flower.

Galanthus  'Bungee' meanwhile is another well named variety, its long, arching pedicel taking flight in the winds we've had recently. Another for the eye level display stand. Unlike images I have seen on the internet mine also feature reflexed outer petals making for a better stretch I think. This is the only bungee jump I'd ever countenance.
