The Soldanella are famous for flowering as the snow melts from them, and I didn't think I would be likely to see it happen here. Indeed, it was bright and dry when it started to flower this year, but then we had a brief snow shower at the start of April. Not enough to create an Arctic landscape, but enough to snatch a chilly picture for posterity.
