In my garden at Beauty Point, Sydney, Australia in July 2014
Snowdrops getting ready to bloom
The first snowdrops opened up on 15 July this year. It was a rainy day. Strictly speaking, these are snowflakes, but they’re commonly called snowdrops. Snowflakes prosper well in Sydney gardens whereas snowdrops prefer a colder climate. A snowdrop has only one flower on a stem while snowflakes can have up to four flowers on a stem. Moreover, snowdrops don’t have green dots on petals, therefore, I think, snowflakes are prettier.
