It really starts the new year for me when we have the first snowdrops. Lots of other bulbs are shooting up as well. Hedge and tree blossom, and then the bluebells are my favourites, but some weeks to wait yet .gio67 wrote:lovely pics birma, hope it,s not too long before we see these in bloom again
I got up this morning to travel away for the week at work and there was snow on the ground - doh! Too dark and too much of a rush to take any shots. I got the CL49-200s after recommendations on the site here, and I found some on eBay in the UK. They are best on the 50mm (with its matching 49mm thread). I bought a step down ring to try them on my beercan but it was all a bit clumsy so I didn't pursue. I haven't tried the mini beer can yet.Juanito200 wrote:Nice pics Birma- I would have been awesome to have them coming through the snow. The weather rarely cooperates for me photographically . I have always wondered it those closeup filters worked well... It sure looks like they do. John
Thanks Greg. The small white flowers are called Snowdrops which is I've always assumed is due to them being white and sometimes appearing while there is still snow around. I think the proper name is Galanthus (?). They are the first common bulbs to flower and they are relatively common in the fields, orchards and woods around here. They are hardy and shrug off frosts. These are in my garden, and were originally transplanted from my sister's garden about 12 miles away. They don't take any looking after and come up every year and sort of start off proceedings as it were . How are the flowers over with you?Greg Beetham wrote:Those are getting going early Birma, aren't they? it's still very winterish there I would have thought...nice pix though, what are they? some type of LIlly, Tulip?
I'll look forward to some colour from the warmer climes .Greg Beetham wrote:so I'll have another look tomorrow.
