They appear on roadsides and hillsides across the country. Snowdrops are one of the first flowers to bloom in the year, and the sight of their white blossom usually celebrates the start of spring.
Logan Botanic Gardens in Galloway is just one of five venues in the region that are taking part in Scotland's Snowdrop Festival.
Started in 2007 it's grown nationally and offers a unique event to see the delicate white flower in gardens which struggle to pull tourists in during the winter months.
Although there aren't many other flowers blooming at this time of year the gardens here at Logan still have plenty on offer.
Richard Baines is the curator here, his job is to see all the plants are protected during the winter months and ensure everything planted at the right time.
But why should people go to Logan Botanic Gardens?
The festival is running until the 16th of March, and everyone is being urged to get out and enjoy the start of spring.
