As Good as it Gets

[196-365] 13th. February 2021- Photoblog has been inundated with photos of ice and snow for weeks now, so it is becoming clear that there is a definite northern bias in this blogosphere. Personally I can live without both so I consider myself lucky that so far we have missed out on this wonder of nature.

We do have the next best thing though at the moment as the lane has Snowdrops in abundance. Little clumps popping up every few yards. As you go up the lane the hedgerow rises up above you so that the Snowdrops are popping out all over, at eye level and you get a chance to see them close up in all their beauty without having to lie on the ground.

An actor walking up the lane could slip into a moment of reverie, imagining they were on stage with a tiered audience of admirers, rising steeply on either side, approving a performance, as the tiny animated flowers nod away in a breeze, that rustles the thousands of dead leaves in the canopy above into applause.

There was only one Primrose to be found just squeezing it's tiny face out from behind an autumnal oak leaf.

Very nice captures. Wish we were surrounded by green pastures and blooming flowers, but instead we have white pastures with dead twigs smile

How soon before you normally get the first spring flowers?

I don't think it's my imagination but cold places seem to be a lot colder this year. I was just reading that they are skating on the canals in Amsterdam which is not usual.

Snowy and icy scenes can be beautiful to look at on the screen, but I would much prefer to be surrounded by flowers and greenery when I am outdoors.
