Default Flowering snowdrop

I have a single snowdrop flowering in my Northamptonshire garden. Together
with still flowering primroses, could it be it a sign for early spring?

Could it be an Autumn - flowering snowdrop such as Reginae Olgae?
I bought one bulb last Spring and kept it in a pot which is showing
nothing!

Hi Pam,
I've had a look at Van Tubergen's webpage and agree that my snowdrop is very
much like the Reginae-olgae as illustrated. Just the flower, stalk and no
leaves. I wasn't aware that I had any autumn flowering snowdrops. Thanks for
showing me that I might well have.
