Snowdrop sighting

I dearly love snowdrops, and some years a heavy snowfall flattens them. I’ve put some upside-down buckets over them to protect them from the weight of snow. This looks absurd and, of course, snowdrops are meant to stand in snow, but I’m emotionally invested in these little bulbs.
