Snowy Crocus.

Whilst I was off line we had some snow, the first in our garden in 5 years.

So very pretty! The yellow and white so nicely compliment each other!
Pauline: Thank you, Elizabeth. Little crowns of snow.

I noticed that little snow-dew-drop on the right hand crocus - it even has a reflection in it, Pauline
Pauline: That's our wooden gazebo, Lis. It had all melted within a couple of hours.

Really - down there on your warm peninsula too!
Pauline: Really, Chris. Carrek enjoyed playing snowballs.

Oh, the crocusses might feel the coldness - unusual in Cornwall. Yes, I see the dew- drop, too. A lovely winter photo!
Pauline: Amazingly they survived, Philine and have only just faded this week.
I would think the garden would love the moisture.
Pauline: Ah, Mary, we don't get a lot of snow but we do get a lot of rain. Often we have too much moisture out there!
They do look pretty against the snow Pauline. It usually goes quite quickly apart from that occasion you mentioned 5 years ago when it was exeptionally cold for Cornwall
Pauline: That was a bad winter, Janet. We had to make a journey from Bedford to here. The M1, M25, M4 & M5 only had one lane open the whole way. The roads here were so icy it was scary.
They look absolutely delightful with the snow on.
Pauline: Thank you, Brian.
This is a great time to capture the crocus Pauline... i love it....petersmile
Pauline: Thank you, Peter. The gold of the crocus goes so well with the snow.
great shot. the one on the right seems to be leaning a bit under the burden of the snow
Pauline: Thank you, Ayush. It soon bounced back when the snow melted.
