To continue the saga where Adrian Higgins left off, the Winterthur snowdrops 
became rapidly submerged in the snow, and stayed that way for the rest of 
the weekend. In consequence the groups I was supposed to show round in 
conjunction with my lectures on Saturday & Sunday had a rather minimal 
viewing of snowdrops...

The March Bank at Winterthur  is indeed an amazing example of genuinely 
naturalised bulbs - snowdrops, Leucojum vernum, Narcissus, Crocus, scilloid 
things etc, but also some extraordinary patches of Adonis amurensis. Well 
worth seeing in normal conditions!
