Snow blossoms

There is something so delightful

About the bright light of spring

And the cold of a lingering winter.

If you look carefully, you can find snow moons

Dancing on the snow.

Snow moons copy

And instead of flowers,

We have snow blossoms

And dazzling light.

snow blossoms

And – just as in real life –

You might be lucky to find

A diamond in the rough.

    Would you believe we finally got snow here? We started to have green come up from the ground…and NOW the snow arrives! It looks so much prettier in your pictures!

  69. Hi! Spring is just around the corner. I like the last photo very much.

    March 27, 2013 at 12:25

  70. The word “snow blossoms” reminds me of Japanese word “botan-yuki (peony-snow)” which is large flakes of snow. Cherry blossoms falling in the wind looks like falling snow and vice versa. Collaboration of light and snow is magically beautiful.

    March 27, 2013 at 15:30

  71. Ah, yes! Snow blossoms! They are a delight for the eyes. :)

    March 27, 2013 at 17:03

  72. The snow crystals look beautiful glistening in the sunshine, every bit as beautiful as early flowers.

    March 27, 2013 at 17:34

  73. that first one is so beautiful and fragile.
    We also had some snow this week while it’s supposed to be spring :-)
    But I don’t mind.

    March 27, 2013 at 19:27

  74. I admire your decidedly positive appreciation of the white stuff and the cld stuff.

    March 27, 2013 at 19:33

  75. Dear Lady Fi !
    You, my friend, are one
    great reason to celebrate

    Wishing you an Easter that’s
    as special as can be.

  80. That’s the full magic of winter … so lovely seen!! wish you Happy Easter and a near Spring !!

    March 28, 2013 at 07:19

  81. Nydelige bilder … du får vinteren til å se vakker ut! Det er disse blomstene jeg kan “hygge” meg med også. Snøen ligger ennå rundt huset, men minker litt for hver dag. I fjor på denne tid blomstret krokus og snøklokker, sukk …. men den som venter på noe godt, venter ikke forgjeves :)

    God påske!

    March 28, 2013 at 09:44

  82. “Snow moons” and “snow blossoms” – I love it!
