Snowdrops are one of the earliest flowering plants. In some Welsh regions, the first flowers of the brave snowdrops appear even in January. When the ground is covered with snow, small white, bell-shaped nodding flowers poke out their heads.

The flower is composed of six white petals; its three inner petals have a notch in the tip, with a visible green "v" pattern.

Snowdrops can be found widely all over the country: in deciduous woodlands, parks, gardens, in meadows, along banks and verges, amongst scrub, and near rivers. People value this flower for its delicate beauty.
