Snowdrops - My World

Not what you were expecting?


If you are a regular visitor you will no doubt be wincing at the bad pun. Well it's your own fault you asked me to start blogging again. If you have wandered here looking for gardening tips like say, when is the best time to plant your snowdrop bulbs ( I presume bulbs as opposed to seeds, but I'm sure some green fingered enthusiast who has wandered here will let you know) then sadly you are most definitely in the wrong place. Nah, that above is a little slice of creative photography representing my weird little part of the planet. I honestly didn't gather clumps of snow and place them strategically amongst the bare twigs. I'm not that dedicated to the blog. No. I came across this lucky image out and about with the camera, on our one and only snowy day (and yes you are going to see a lot of those images because I'm sick of rainy day ones) and just couldn't resist capturing it, against that palest of cool blue skies. Simple as that.

Now you may find this hard to believe, but there are one or two of us who haven't actually seen the white stuff in the flesh so to speak, so even if there'd been little white elephants in the plant, we'd have hung on to your every word if you if you said they were real!

Never seen snnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooow. Poor deprived you. I coud say the ame about the sunshine here. No white elephants but maybe the escaped wallaby hiding behind the bushes. It's all true you know.

What wonderful little white cups. I wonder what enchanting elixir we could sip from them. Just as long as it isn't yellow snow.

Good shot. Add me to the list of those who have rarely seen snow.

I love that shot. Nice fluffy snow if only for a day. I laughed at your discussing the title and who it might bring to your blog. I had a title to a post on one of my blogs saying, Lion's and Tigers and Bears. Let me say it brought people looking for the Wizard of Oz.

I love your shot! It's really beautiful -- nature at her most creative and while I'm sure you're really tired of the cold and the snow, you showed it at it's best! Hope you stay warm, have a nice hot drink and think about summer!!

These look like cotton balls waiting to be picked.

Greyscale Territory said...

They almost look like white roses! Very beautiful!

Pagan Sphinx said...

It is a-bloom with snow, by golly! Lovely!

Rob Inukshuk said...

Great winter shot and I love the heading too!

Brian Miller said...

Good to have you back M'lady.

Jossie said...

Lovely picture. In our country the snow is washed away by the rain. Looks all dreary and wet now.

Virginia said...

Snow is the photographer's friend. The Snow gods blessed me with snow in Birmingham and in Paris this year. This is a gorgeous shot B. Take em while you can!

Very nice. Looks like you managed to take the photo before the wind arrived.

Babooshka: What a beautiful capture, the Queen Anne Lace did a wonderful job of capturing the snow.

Louis la Vache said...

«Louis» also thought the image was of cotton balls. A childhood in the Texas panhandle will do that to you...

Aloha, Friend!

Looks a bit like cotton balls. A major crop here in California. At least it was until we ran out of water.

Chuck Pefley said...

so glad you grew these snowdrops yourself. About time to harvest and can, don't you think? Serve with cranberries -:)

Mirage said...

Always pleasant visiting your page! lol @Chuck!

Susan said...

Doesnt the snow just make everything seem like a fairy land. Gorgeous photo.

SandyCarlson said...

I'm glad you're back.

I am always amazed by how much snow these little branches can hold.

Lawstude said...

really creative and amazing shot :)

imac said...

Like like your shot, also the title goes well.

Rob and Mandy said...

Hey, welcome back! Very nice snowdrops!

The Good Life in Virginia said...

i think these are fab myself...almost cotton-ball-ish looking.
have a gret rest of the week.

Marie said...

Hello Babooshka, these snow flowers are cute and unusual but I hope they will wither quickly and the sun will be back in your part of the world. I personally don't like cold weather.

Rajesh said...

Great shot. They look like flowers of snow.

Mojo said...

Soooo... a snowdrop is a flower I take it?

These actually do favor a flower of some sort. A keen eye as always Babs.

I'm with Sandy, I'm always amazed at how much snow a twig/branch can support. And I'll also second her on the "glad you're back".

Halcyon said...

Beautiful! It looks like a cotton plant.

Frank said...

The shot kind of looks like our deep south cotton plants...minus the snow on the ground. Very cool image!!
