These snowdrop flowers have been frozen solid numerous times & buried under 3′ of snow and they’re still blooming! They are so resilient the leaves aren’t even broken. In previous years I’ve seen insects foraging on these flowers (possibly native bees). My husband’s uncle Len gave us a few plants from his garden which I planted in several spots. Just as well because every winter a clump disappears, don’t know what happens because apparently animals don’t eat the bulbs, but maybe my voles do!
