Snowdrops this Spring

Walk around the grasslands, woodlands, parks or gardens in early spring and you are very likely to come across large sprays of delicate white flowers, commonly known as snowdrops. They may be small but they come with a mysterious, complex history and have been used for centuries as a symbol of rebirth and renewal.
