I took this photo last week, before the snow. Today, one week later, all our snow is gone! Part of me is sad, but then, the birds are happy and chirping; they are announcing: spring! Yesterday I walked past a different neighbor whose snowdrops had already formed blooms.

Snowdrops are so darling. They look so fragile and innocent to me. Can’t wait to see them in full bloom!
I’d rather have the snow drops than the snow, anyday. Can’t wait to see them flower.

lovely pictures, very soon you can see them!
So wonderful to see signs of spring, even if it’s not in my own country! Snowdrops are so delicate and lovely!
I’m not sure what a snow drop looks like but just the green is nice to look at after this cold winter.
What lovly snowdrops . Here in the North of Sweden we have a lot of snow so any sign of snowdrops isn´t showing yet.
Have a nice evening

I don’t know what snowdrops are. I’ll have to look them up. It will be nice to see those in bloom. It looks like there will be a lot of them.
if you draw the Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) flower, please post your artwork?
Love to see it..
It’s always so exciting to see the first green shoots breaking through the snow or what was just recently frozen ground. Hope SPRINGS eternal!
Few days more and we’re seeing beautiful blooms! 😉 Have a nice week!
The hope of spring keeps all of us going at this point! Will look forward to seeing them in bloom.
That surely is a good sign that spring is near
They are such durable little things, growing uner snow as knowing spring is on the way. They don’t mind s snowy blanket even when in full bloom and will bounce right back when it is gone. The earliest flower of spring to give hope of the change in seasons.
Leora: I have these also but didn’t know the name. They are a great little flower.
Wonderful! Can’t wait to see the blooms.
Nice to see the tips of new life in your garden, Leora. I’m a little sad that winter is passing soon because I think it’s a beautiful season but I’m looking forward to flowers in my gardens. Nothing in mine yet, though.

Snow drops cheering grey days into light!
I am so happy to experience Spring in the desert!
I think of not having the snow (I’m one that loves it) but I’ve sat with my glass doors to my deck open for two days listening to the birds and things are sprouting – just another season to love.
Hope you’ll show us these again when they bloom.
My post this week is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures.
The spring is coming…
Wonderful pic! I can’t wait to see the blooms too…
Are they snowdrops? Or crocuses? All are so very welcome, aren’t they? One of my bulbs shows a tiny bud; I’ll have to go out there and photograph it!
I’m pretty sure they are snowdrops, from past memory. I saw some crocuses further down the block yesterday. Maybe I’ll have a chance to run down the block and take some photos of those, before they all fade away!
Don’t be sad!
Flowers and plants enjoy our life!
I love it when things start peeking through the ground.
Spring must be just around the corner. They seem very delicate, but bursting with life. Lovely post.
Hi, I found you via Ascender’s blog and stopped for a look. I agree that snowdrops seem preferable to snow. It is Spring now in sunny Northern California.
Nice one. Did you take it with your new toy? What do you make of it?
Yes, I can do shots like these, but I need to buy a telephoto lens to do anything at a distance. I think I need a good discussion with a camera-knowledgeable person.
I always loved the first flowers of the season.
Just a bit of green here but plenty of bird song…
What a lovely capture of spring beginnings.
I think I never have seen snowdrops. You make me curious how they look like in full bloom. Best wishes 🙂
wow that is so spring, Leora! Ive never seen that when i experienced winter days for 3 years.
