    • Thanks Bren! It’s freezing cold here as well, I hope the snowdrops will survive.. πŸ™‚ .. 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. πŸ˜€

    • Thanks so much! Snowdrops is what we call these small flowers, the “real” name is Galanthus. πŸ™‚

  10. 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?

    • Thanks Mike! πŸ™‚ 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.

  14. 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.

      • 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

  15. It can’t have snow drops already? I love how you filed the frame with them. They’re so delicate and beautiful.

    • 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! πŸ™‚
