Glory of the snow

Everybody knows Daffodils and Tulips as typical springflowers, but there exist also other species.

Here’s another hardy and early blooming flower (march and april) which is generally less known.
Glory of the snow is originating from the mountains of south-western Turkey where they often bloom through the snow.

Dutch name : Grote sneeuwroem
German name : Grosse Sternhyazinthe (auch Schneeglanz oder Schneestolz genannt)
Latin name : Chionodoxa forbesii

    Die hast Du wunderschön freigestellt, ich finde das Bild herrlich, zumal das Licht in den Blüten diese regelrecht erstrahlen lässt.

    Wonderful light you captured here. The contrast between the blue of the flowers and the dark background looks superb.
