A snowdrop picked 99 years ago by Arthur Conan Doyle is expected to sell for £500 today.
Every spring, the creator of Sherlock Holmes handed wife Jean the first one he found in their garden - and she kept them all.
The tradition was revealed by their son Adrian, who wrote: â€śHere are the heartbeats of love.â€ť His letter and the snowdrop will be sold with a note from the writerâ€™s wife in Nottingham.
