Raindrops on roses...

and snowdrops on steroids!

No, we haven't any roses in flower just yet, though there may be some drops of rain later.

However, we do have 'snowdrops on steroids'.

Whilst not strictly speaking snowdrops (they are a variety of Leucojum called Summer Snowflake), at this time of year they do make a fine display in this particular border of the Tense Towers garden.

Why 'on steroids'? Well, here's a photo of the whole clump, with a pair of my boots shown for scale.

Yep, definitely not snowdrops.

Triffids perhaps?

I never go out in the garden without a bucket of sea water!
