Snowdrop Flowers

Are you familiar with snowdrop flowers? The snowdrop flower, or Galanthus nivalis, is a member of the Amaryllidaceae family of plants that originated in Europe and grow in various parts of North America. The bulb of the snowdrop flower is mildly toxic, according to North Carolina State University.
We have plenty of snowdrop flowers at our backyard and my daughter loves sniffing at them. Some people believe that snowdrops symbolize new beginnings and hope because they typically bloom at the end of winter and announce the approach of spring. Growing close to the ground, they also represent death. Picking snowdrops and bringing them inside is considered unlucky.
