I am so jealous. I keep think spring is on the way and then - snow.
That is beautiful. Nicely composed giving it a nice design.
25 Mar 2008 5:04pm
@Michael Rawluk: Thanks, Michael. We are experiencing snow right at this moment. But the flowers are still out.
Lovely composition of these variegated crocuses! Are they wild or cultivated? We've had a lot of wild ones this year all in the lawn outside our apartment building - pretty, but not so striking as these striped ones. :-)
25 Mar 2008 5:46pm
@Anne: Thanks, Anne. These striped orchids are cultivated rather than wild.
I love these, the colour combination is wonderful and you have captured them beautifully Michael.
