It takes a peculiar act of faith, or perhaps insanity, to spend a not inconsiderable sum of money
on a small plastic parcel of peat on the promise that it contains a desirable bulb. This is the inevitable destiny of snowdrop growers.
The parcel contained a small bulb as promised, and this is the ground I have planted it in.
Not a very inspiring picture, I grant you, but I have spent real money to get this far, and you're going to see it, dammit!
