Interesting Fact - Flowers

Spring is springing in the UK, and one of the first signs of spring here is the appearance of snowdrops.

According to the official website of the Colesbourne estate, famous for its snowdrop gardens, there are 19 wild species of the genus Galanthus.

At the gardens on the estate, they grow over 250 different types, although sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference.)
