Spring is starting to reveal itself and the first snowdrops are through. In the garden we planted a number of them a few years ago and now they are starting to make their presence felt. Walking into the village, there are many crocuses starting to come through. It always looks a struggle for them especially with the recent cold and wet weather that leaves them looking a little bedraggled. Over the next few months there will be more bulbs starting to flower. With a year on since the start of the series of Lockdowns caused by the Pandemic there is something once again to look forward to and pick up the spirits.
When taking pictures of flowers ensure you get down to their level. I did get very muddy getting this picture with my compact camera. The Snowdrops was taken with a macro lens and the lovely black background was provided by a T-shirt.
Further Updates on Spring
We are waiting for the Bluebells and the Poppies to show themselves in the coming weeks. Spring is an exciting time.
I will be keeping an eye out on BBC Springwatch for regular updates and also getting gardening tips from the RHS so that there are lovely flowers in the garden to photograph.
