My daily picture – Spring messengers

My husband brought me today a bouquet of snowdrops. I love them! 

Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) are one of the first of all spring flowers to bloom. Although they have a fragile appearance, the snowdrops know how to defend themselves very well. Their bulbs are poisonous, which is why no rodents dare to eat them. If a person is curious to taste from the bulb, he risks getting intoxicated, because the substances it contains are poisonous to humans.  I have pleasant memories about this flower. Every spring, when snowdrops were blooming, my mother brought a large bouquet of snowdrops picked from the garden into the house. She always told us not to bring a single snowdrops into the house because it brings bad luck and we  could   remain spinsters!??
