Leaves of snowdrops (Galanthus) are just now starting to emerge by late December, promising soul-cheering flowers in January. This is one bulb that prefers to be planted "in the green," just after flowering. Look for them at local nurseries in early winter and then plant them under a deciduous shrub, or next to a late appearing perennial like a hosta or peony.
