The Common Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) is a small, white flower that blooms in early spring. It is one of the first flowers to appear after the snow melts, and can often be seen growing in fields and woods. The Common Snowdrop has a long, slender stem and small, oval-shaped leaves. The flower itself is white with a greenish-yellow centre.

Common Snowdrops are found throughout Europe, Asia and North America. In the UK, they can be seen in woods and fields from January to March.

The best time to see Common Snowdrops is in February or March, when they are at their peak bloom.
