way before its time

Many thanks for your C&Cs on the little crab spider in the big flower. Chris (slowsong), you are right about the name.

A little violet shows its head in our 'lawn' way before spring. I checked today, they are still there after 5 days of early morning frost. a little marvel!!

Lovely colour and veining from the backlight Annette. The blurring of the edges between the seasons is becoming evermore pronounced.

It's quite scary that the spring flowers are coming out. On my morning walk this morning I saw two daffodils! Sad You've found a good bit of sunshine here Annette!

I've heard of others seeing spring flowers way too early - nature is confused! A beautiful image - lilac was my grandmother's favorite color and it always reminds me of her.

The back lighting just lifts the image to another level, Annette: and so nice to see another sunny image midst all this miserable spell of winter weather.

Simply beautiful and a real tonic to help us through these dark winter days. I've never known there be as many flowers in bloom as there are this year, the extremely mild wet winter thus far seems to have really stimlulated new growth
