As I said a week or two ago, there are certain signs that Spring has arrived. My favorite (outside warmer weather) are when the snowdrops bloom.
What's weird about shooting them, though, is that I appreciate them more when they are actually surrounded by snow. White flower with white background, green stems standing out shouting that "Spring Has Arrived!"
But, and here's the strange thing, I only see them that way after a late snowstorm. They need fresh snow to shine. Old, dingy, dead snow doesn't do it. Growing through dead fall flowers doesn't do it.
So, paradoxically, my favorite sign of Spring is tied directy to what should be the last snow of Winter.
Now, look below and tell me you disagree.
