Val, I understand your enthusiasm very well, I experience it the same way. It is a very rare moment when their first modest flowers appear at the end of winter, it is an unmistakable sign of the coming spring. I think we'll start a snowdrop lovers club. I send you many greetings, I often think of you, my dear friend ♥:))

Deanna

Thank you, Fingerbreaker, your words took me on an unexpected journey. It occurred to me to find out who gave the name to our Milky Way galaxy.
No one knows exactly who came up with the name, but there is a Greek myth about the origin of the name.
Zeus once brought little Heraclitus to sleeping Hera to feed him. But it was Zeus' illegitimate child. When Hera woke up, she pushed the baby away. Milk splashed out of her, the drops forming the Galaxy - the Milky Way.
In different countries and languages, our galaxy has different names (I didn't know that), for example: Straw Road, Scattered Straw Road, Santiago Road, Winter Road, Birds Road, Straw Thief's Road, etc. The Chinese and Japanese name for our galaxy is the Silver River, which is not just a name for the Milky Way, but for galaxies in general.
Who would have thought where a photo with snowdrops would take us ♥:))

Lovely Snow Drops thank you Deanna, I get so excited when they first appear in spring, I also enjoyed seeing them here ☺♥

Fingerbreaker

Words are wonderful. They can take us on unexpected journeys.

Deanna

Marion, thank you too ♥:))

Deanna,, thanks♥

Deanna

You are right Fingerbreaker, in Latin the ancestral name for snowdrop is Galanthus and the species name is nivalis. That means "snowy" in Latin. This offers a connection for me - white and snow. The roots as you write are probably in the Greek name for milk with a white color association as well. And your "jump" into space, to our star home "Milky Way" is interesting, very inspiring, thank you for your interesting comment ♥:))

Thank Fb, that is quite interesting to know. I have loved seeing The Milky Way but never knew the origin of the name.

Fingerbreaker

D: the Latin name for 'Snowdrop,' is Galanthus
It's from the Greek for Milk, 'Gala', because the flowers are as white as milk.
Which leads me nicely onto 'Galaxy', our name for the Milky Way, because that is how it looks up there.

Deanna

Eloise, thank you very much for your kind words, I send you a "white greeting" to Aotearoa ♥:))

Deanna

Marion, I'm so sorry you had such a hard time. I understand you well, your life has changed a lot and you find joy in it despite your loss. The individual chapters of our lives are gradually closing, and we must seek new meaning and joy in the others. I wish you so many of nice moments as possible ♥:))

Deanna

Iris, I'm always so glad to see your smile. It's nice that the same flowers bloom in our gardens even though we're so far away. We could start a "snowdrop fan club", I think there would be a lot of members ♥:))

Such sweet flowers.

Deanna

Jill, that's interesting, we each live on different parts of the Earth, so far apart, and we have exactly the same feelings. Snowdrops are also the messengers of spring here and we all love them together, all over the world. Plus ... we can to tell it each other, it's like a little miracle. Opportunities we couldn't even dream of before. Thank you for coming to enjoy some white flowers with me ♥:))

Deanna

Dasa, my dear friend, thank you for coming, I'm sending you these first messengers of spring for joy, maybe we won't wait long. For now, however, winter still holds its rule over the landscape. The days are getting longer and that is a good sign. I wish you a beautiful weekend too, I hope you enjoy at least a moment of sunshine ♥:))

JillianB

Deanna

Fingerbreaker, thank you for your visit and the English name, it's very kind of you. I use Latin names because according to them it is possible to find the name of flowers in national languages ♥:))

Deanna

Marion, thank you for the name of the flower in Dutch, I'm so glad to see you. The snowdrops in the garden are already starting to bloom ... even in the snow. I wish you a short wait for spring ♥:))
