First Snowdrop of 2024

Today (4th January 2024), I found this year's first garden snowdrop (Photo 1).

As usual, for the earliest snowdrop anyway, it could be found in Mary's mini-wood adjacent to the greenhouse (Photo 2).

It is the same snowdrop bulb that produced the first flower in 2023 (Photo 2) albeit 10 days later ...

... and in 2022 on the 13th of the month (Photo 4)...

I have reported this sighting to Nature's Calendar, despite their 'warning' that this is outside its usual flowering period. All I can do is report the evidence (with photo).🤷
