Flowers of February

Snowdrops and Crocuses are one of the earliest flowers. They starts flower already in January and February. And they look particularly spectacular.

So the Flowers of February are Snowdrops and Crocuses.

Snowdrops have been known since the earliest times under various names. But were named Galanthus in 1753. The “milk flowers” because their latin genus name is Galanthus. It comes from the Greek and gala meaning milk and anthos meaning flower.

The most wonderful and unique collection of over 100 named varieties of snowdrops can see at Altamont Gardens. During the month of February there is annual Snowdrops Festival at Altamont Gardens.

I love taking photos of flowers. Below photos of Snowdrops I took in February 2021 next to St. Patrick’s Carlow College and VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art.

Also I came across there to spring Crocuses. Carpets of the small yellow Crocuses and some white and purple flowering. These are very cheerful flowers.
