Only a few days ago, these crocuses were open and attracting bees. Yesterday, they attracted a snowfall. An unusual first day of Spring.
nice contrast betweenn the flowers colors and the snow. The composition is interesting. I like this shot a lot.

@chris chisu: Thanks, Chris. Shams Ibn Battutah was a well-known (in the Arab world) Moroccan traveler from the 14th century who wrote a fabulous book about his travels.
So beautiful. The colors are very rich and so full of promise. Love the drops on the one flower.

@GJC: Thank you so much, GJC.
The contrast between the crisp white snow, the green leaves and the deep purple of the crocus is beautiful. I find it amazing that this delicate little flower can withstand such cold weather. Wonderful Michael.

@MadScientist: I agree. Thank you, MS.
Wonderfully captured with the few drops of water on the petals! Well, it's not unusual to have "the snow of the lambs"! March is after all a very whimsical month! We had rain the last two days and today very strong, cold winds! But...tomorrow spring will be back.....with a vengeance! By Sunday we might see the first cherry blossoms! So....life is beautiful!

@Japanalia: Now that really is a positive comment. Thank you, Gabriela.
Great sharpness and depth of field. Very beautiful shot!
21 Mar 2008 3:17pm
@Peter: Thank you, Peter.
Les caprices du temps et ce retour au froid et à la neige font se refermer les pauvres crocus le jour même du printemps, alors qu'il en est le symbole même. Mais cela a au moins l'avantage de t'avoir permis de réaliser une fort jolie photo, à toute chose un coté positif !!
