Lovely example of what we have to look forward to.

Viola said...

Tydeligvis har det gjort det hos deg, vakkert!! :) Men hos meg er det ennå masse vinter, ihvertfall på mitt innlegg av i dag :) Men det våres, det våres! Og det føles godt! :)

Dina said...

I sure hope it is soon spring for you. You certainly deserve it.

The flower seems to have a light bulb inside. So beautiful.

Arya said...

Og hvor er du i landet?? Hjemme så lavet snøen så kraftig ned at de ikke så over til naboen engang! Men den kommer nok - og det var oppmuntrende å se at noen iallefall har fått noen oppløftende tegn

John said...

I certainly hope it has; nice here in the UK, 11C today with blue sky.

Monicas Hage said...

Så heldig du er! En meter med snø enda her, og ingen snøklokker... Nydelig bilde med håp om vår:)

In french, they are called "Perce-neige", which means "snow piercing"!..The flowers of hope and revival!

Himmel! Har det kommet så langt borte hos deg??? Nydelig bilde i hvertfall!

Anne said...

Åååå der, endelig!!!! sier nå jeg, bare du blåser litt av de varme vinder hitover nå så...., for en stakkar trønder måker seg snart lukt ihjel sjø, det er helt ustanserlig som det snør og snør og snør og snør...

Men vi lar oss ikke knekke nei :-)

Fin ukestart til deg Rune.

Hege said...

Jeg dør litt av misunnelse... det er stygt å være misunnelig altså. Men... jeg kan ikke hjelpe for det - det har snødd og snødd og snødd i helga!!!

Nydelig vårbilde var det da - det varmer jo hjertet mitt litt! :)

James said...

I think yes!

Petunia said...

Rune! Det er ikke gull du har funnet, men noe mye bedre:)
Tenk disse pleier jeg å finne i hagen i januar og i år har jeg ikke sett snurten. Det vil nok gå enda en uke eller to før snøen er vekke og snøklokkene titter frem... Må vel bare smøre meg med tålmodighet... *sukke*.

Anne-Berit said...

Hos dere ser det ut til å være håp,tenk så glad man kan bli av å se sånne små vårtegn.
Blir nok ennå ei stund til her hos oss,men i dag dryppet det av taket da sola skinte,og det er da noe:)

What a precious little fellow to come upon! And what good tidings he brings! Great macro, Rune.

Marka said...

Spring is gettin' closer every day!

Stephany said...

And a lovely snowdrop it is! Great capture, Rune!

I remember we used to plant this flower in our garden in the northeast of US and wait patiently for the first sign of spring. Spring have been here in Taiwan for a while now, it is actually quite hot today close to 80 degree F. I like your shot, the flower almost like a little bulb, light up.

Anna said...

I am looking forward for a spring here, hope to see it soon. Excellent shot, I love white flowers. Great combination of white and green. Thanks for sharing RuneE. Anna :)

Lara Neusiedler said...

I love your photos! I'm a Norge-a-phile so love about anything connected with Norway. I'm signing on as a follower of your blog if you don't mind. Have a great week!

Paulie said...

It's beautiful -- looks more like a rain drop. . .

Vaggelis said...

becky at abbeystyle said...

Hurray for you!!! No matter how long the winter, spring is SURE to follow! Beautiful things, those snowdrops!

Unseen Rajasthan said...

What a beautiful shot !! Simply amazing !1

Gallow said...

It's nice to see colors again. I look forward to spring here as well. Excellent photo. I like the hints of snow around the edge.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Det er noen som har det ja, hehe, her er det lenge til slike tilstander, men veldig godt å se at det finnes håp om vår og vekst. :)

Ida said...

Et kjærkomment syn,
og et lekkert bilde i duse og behagelige toner. Har ikke sett en eneste snøklokke så langt denne våren, jeg. Mot normalt.

Petra said...

These first envoys of spring... what an optimistic mood they bring! There has been plenty of snow here this winter, quite unusually. Even this morning and afternoon it was snowing quite heavily and roads were covered in snow. No need to look for adrenalin sports, commuting works perfectly in this weather... :-)

i think the word is limpid

Ann said...

A very sharp closeup. The snowdrop in New Zealand grow in a clump.

Lew said...

Great compostion of this beauty! I see the last bits of ice have not yet melted.

I have no blossoms yet, but buds aplenty, and new growth on the rose bushes.

Tammie Lee said...

Barbara Martin said...

There is something to be said about a photo of a flowering plant pushing up from partially snow covered ground: awesome!
