the type I like to see in February:
& snow crocuses
I've seen snowdrops before, but never snow crocuses. They may be even more beautiful. And I love the gentle dappled light in the second picture. I can imagine it's quite lovely to see this kind of snow on your balcony.
On this side of the world I've been spotting the tibouchinas are flowering. They are stunning and I love seeing them, but they do herald the end of our summer.
Thank you, Denise. This morning I woke up to snow on the ground, but it's melting quickly. Hurrah. The "snow" on my balcony can stay as long as it likes.
Hello, Kathryn. I don't know tibouchinas at all but am curious to see and learn about this plant. I hope you had a good summer -- from the look s of your sunflowers, tomatoes and watermelon & time spent cycling, I would guess you did :-).
Beautiful photos Elaine and so lovely to see some harbingers of spring. In our part of the world we have some snowdrops appearing and I think there were some crocus on the way but our chickens got to them first (bless 'em).
(p.s I've just looked up tibouchinas too - very pretty things!)
Thank you, Sophie. Oh, dear -- well, I hope the chickens enjoyed the crocuses. And this leads me to wonder what they taste like. I think I'll just keep wondering rather than find out for myself.
I agree, tibouchinas are gorgeous. Such a vibrant purple!
