A Carpet of Snowdrops


The Snowdrops line an avenue of trees near where I live.

It is hard to know where to point the camera.

  3. David took the words right out of my mouth 🙂 The moss on the tree completes the scene.

    Stunning. Actually better in some ways in the photo as at least your eye can concentrate on a particular spot. In “real life”, it is difficult to know where to look!

    I actually got a little emotional, it is so beautiful. Teary-eyed over some flowers? Seems silly, but still…

  8. I like the moss on the tree. Snowdrops do show to advantage in bulk. I’ve never managed to visit one of the big “Snowdrop” gardens to see carpets of them.

  11. Thanks everyone for the great comments – in reality it is WOW – the snowdrops up this drive must have been there for years and years – it is incredibly hard to know where to look and they just seem to shimmer everywhere the eye can go. It is hard to focus.
    I do love the old trees with the moss too.
