Snowdrop Day postponed until 16th February

We decided to postpone the NGS Open Days on 4/5 February as so few snowdrops are showing. It has been bitterly cold here for nearly two weeks with the ground often frozen all day. The early snowdrops are still in flower, looking a little sad and droopy in the cold, but the main show is on hold. You can see them bravely coming through the frozen earth if you look closely but they are waiting for a little warmth to bring them on. The nivalis carpet in the wood is hidden from view. We did not want to disappoint people with such a poor show so we thought it better to delay.
