Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 28th February, 2019)
It's all about Hall lane these days. Everyone a good photo though
Another feast for the eyes..aptly named 'The flower of Hope'..lovely shot.thank you David.
No matter what the weather, these fragile looking flowers have the hidden strength to push through to light & life. Just amazing. Thanks David.
Long sleeps the Winter, cold, wet and grey,
Surely all the world is dead....Spring is far away.
Wait! The world shall waken...it is not dead foe lo!...
The Fair Maids of February stand in the snow.
(The Song of The Snowdrop Fairy, from "Flower Fairies")
Snowdrops ... What a treat!
The first sure signs that Winter is loosening it's icy grip, with the promise of Spring and warmer days ahead.
( This February must be the warmest on record!)
Looking forward to my snowdrops in early April, at the moment it is -1F/-18C , one of the coldest and snowiest February’s on record!
Brass monkeys are in trouble.
Fascinating flower fairies - I loved them as a child - and still do Irene. I really believed fairies made their clothes from the flowers!
They are very healthy looking. Mine always had a more tattered appearance of the foliage. Lost them altogether this year. Snowdrop bulbs are susceptible to dehydration, and I guess the Long drought of last Summer was their nemesis.
Nice of you to have put forward The Song . . ., Irene.
