Week 12! Little blue spring flowers, they’re called Chionodoxa but are also known as “Glory-of-the-snow”. In Sweden we call them (translated) “Spring Stars”, which I think is a very nice name 🙂
Week 11: The first cherry blossoms of the year! 🙂
Yesterday I saw my first bee of the year, and not just any bee – I think she’s unusually beautiful, and look how happy she is! 🙂 Covered in fresh pollen from a crocus, just what she needed after the winter.
Slowly it’s getting warmer.. Week 10 now and here in Amsterdam we can enjoy some spring flowers already 🙂
I took these pictures this afternoon –
(1) Lent lily (Narcissus pseudonarcissus)
(2) Christmas rose (Helleborus niger)
I know it’s only the 22nd of February, but Spring is coming! Here’s my first flower picture of the year, taken a few days ago 🙂
(In case it’s not obvious, I don’t own a macro lens anymore and I’m not fully familiar with my new camera but I’m learning as I go along!)
Wishing you all a Happy Easter!
May your Easter basket be full of hope, health, joy, happiness and peace.

Withered, but still decorative 🙂
Ps. I’m taking a little blog break, back in a few weeks!
Only seven weeks into 2015, and this weekend I already found flowers to photograph. Crazy! This winter’s no winter.
So far we haven’t had a real winter here in Amsterdam this year either, but last night it snowed for the first time! Unfortunately it’s melted away already.. These pictures were taken this morning
