  6. Love those images Calee — just what the Doctor ordered for a snowy, 15 degree F day in central New York!!! It’ll be weeks before I have something similar in my viewfinder.

  7. Hi
    Very nicely done – but we’ve not seen too many of these around here at the moment. i just hope that the ground is not too waterlogged! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks John! Your spring flowers have to get life jackets or learn how to swim, I saw there were more than 150 flood warnings in the UK! I hope you’re ok!

  8. How wonderful it is to see these, Calee!
    Ours are still buried under 2+ feet of snow. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Happy Sunday to you!

  12. Beautiful shots of the snowdrops and I really love the soft backdrops. I saw snowdrops blooming earlier this month here–since then we have had about 30 cm of snow, most of which is still on the ground. Spring is not here yet.

    • Thanks Mike! I saw the first snowdrops when I was in Sweden over Christmas?! Very strange winter over here. This week is very “springy”, the days are longer and more flowers are starting to bloom! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Snowdrops bloomed here this week, just in time to get covered by the snow. But it looks like they survived being encased in ice. Spring must be coming,

    • They are tough little flowers, as long as they’re not covered in snow for too long, they will make it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Very Nice. ๐Ÿ™‚
