This is wonderful, Barbs, a snow-laden mimosa, which looks as though it is going to come into flower very soon, as mine is Smile. A top class capture. Carol

Good details in this green and white study! Horrible day here too - blizzard conditions. I shan't be going anywhere either! Adrian pointed out to me yesterday, you can alter the Exif details if you go into Edit. I had to as I took my most recently posted image in the evening and it was telling anyone who checked it was the morning, which made no sense as the flower was set against a dark window!

Clicked earlier but then the 'phone went........drives me mad every morning, these calls about PIP, etc.
So back to your photo........the flash has brought out all the detail in the melting snow covering and the vibrant greens of the foliage, Barbara, but I have to admit in a plant that I don't recognise.
Hope you enjoy your enforced extra leisure day.
Ronnie.

Now that was a clever trick, you must have known you were going to take it as you uploaded it, I must say you fail the Physchic test though by not having a key! Anyway back to the picture which is a belter Barbara, the detail is marvellous.
