Snowdrop (Galanthus)~ According to legend, the snowdrop became the symbol of hope when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. When Eve was about to give up hope that the cold winters would never end, an angel appeared. She transformed some of the snowflakes into snowdrop flowers, proving that the winters do eventually give way to the spring. A snowdrop rhyme "The Snowdrop, in purest white array, First rears her head on Candlemas day."
