The Snowdrops Are Up in The Capital District

A sure sign of spring is the appearance of snowdrops in mid-March in our area. Even though it is not a native (from the Mediterranean region to the Caucasus Mountains) it is still good to see something green coming out of the ground. The Wall Street Journal published an article recently about some people’s obsession with snowdrops. See it HERE. Now we can keep our eyes out for coltsfoot although there are reports of it up Saratoga way. See the Saratoga Woods Blog on the sidebar. – Steve Young

  1. Hey Steve, thanks for the plug for my blog! The exciting season for wildflower nuts is just beginning. Just today I found that tiny trillium (Trillium nivale) that’s not supposed to grow in NY just about to bloom in the Orra Phelps Nature Preserve in Wilton. Also one tiny white and fragrant violet that eludes my efforts to identify it. Maybe you will be able to help me with this. I’ll be posting a blog about it soon. Again, thanks.
