Lovely picture, I was thinking of spring today and wishing it would soon get here, as I stood out in the freezing cold…
February 21, 2013 at 5:56 PM
Thanks Bren! It’s freezing cold here as well, I hope the snowdrops will survive.. .. and soon be accompanied by crocuses and other spring flowers!

It is freezing here, and when I went out there was snow blowing in the air. Luckily it never turned to much but it is cold enough to snow.

Love your title for the photo!

Thanks so much! Snowdrops is what we call these small flowers, the “real” name is Galanthus.
February 21, 2013 at 7:11 PM
Wow, this is lovely. They look like suspended little white bulbs.

Thanks Gracie! They are really cute, small flowers. They haven’t opened yet, but soon… I hope

Thanks Sofia! Yes, they are the first and nicest sign of spring!

Wonderful photo Calee. Love the name of these flowers. So easy to see why and how they were named.
February 21, 2013 at 7:14 PM
Thanks Alison! Indeed easy to see why, especially before they’ve opened up!
February 21, 2013 at 7:20 PM
I’ll take your snowdrops over our freezing rain. Enjoyed!

Thanks so much, I’m glad you like it!

That’s a pretty little flower. You will need to post a photo after they open up too.

Thanks Roy, I will!

Beautiful shot. We’ve had really strange weather and I photographed snowdrops blooming at he end of December. I am going to have to return to that garden and see what’s blooming now. When does tulip season start for you?
February 22, 2013 at 12:31 AM
Thanks Mike! Usually the tulips start blooming in April, but it could be earlier and later than that.. We’ll see! I already look forward to it.

I’m so happy to see this in Friday morning!
I have seen this kind of plant in the book many times but in actual life, none!
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Sydney! It’s a very common flower over here, usually the first one to show up after the winter!
February 22, 2013 at 4:28 PM
Wow! Is a blessed land, indeed!
February 22, 2013 at 4:36 PM
I love that they seem to pop up the very week that winter is about to drive me bonkers. You’ve captured a lovely image of the first green of spring!
February 22, 2013 at 3:05 AM
Thanks Janet! I was happy to see them too, I love winter but now I’m looking forward to spring..
February 22, 2013 at 4:29 PM
Calee, this took my breathe away! I adore snowdrops. Springtastic!
Blessings ~ Wendy

Thanks sweet Wendy! I’m happy I found a sign of spring, it’s been a long and cold winter here.. Hugs
February 22, 2013 at 4:30 PM
Very nice! “First sign of spring?” Are you kidding? We’ve got at least 5 weeks before we start seeing signs of spring here…
February 22, 2013 at 5:12 PM
Thanks Kevin! It’s -5′C here now, not sure if they snowdrops will survive.. But spring is definitely on its way, it’s not pitch black anymore when I go to/from work.
February 23, 2013 at 9:06 AM
Ahh yes, the light. The days are just starting to be a decent length here. I’m glad I’m not in Anchorage when the sun is up at 10am and down at 3pm. Looking forward to more of your spring-is-coming shots!
February 23, 2013 at 7:11 PM
It can’t be..you have snow drops already? I love how you filed the frame with them. They’re so delicate and beautiful.
February 23, 2013 at 1:29 AM
Thanks so much, Emily! These were the first ones I’ve seen this year, but I suspect they’ll pop up everywhere in just a few weeks. Yay for spring!
February 23, 2013 at 9:07 AM
Bring on spring, I’m officially done with winter….Excellent shot..:-)
February 24, 2013 at 1:23 PM
Thanks Ed! And same here, I love winter but now I’m really looking forward to spring.. Crocuses, lent lilies, tulips!!!
