Snowdrops in January-snowdrop photos

Welcome to a new addition of Macro Flowers! I bring spring to you today. The new snowdrops are out.
In the new year, winter suddenly retreats and instead of the usual, frosty days we have temperatures between 5-10°C. All the snow is gone and the snowdrops are here.

Have you ever looked at a snowdrop flower from below?
Have you ever wondered what is this delicate, little flower hiding under its bent head?
Snowdrop flowers - close-up view from below There are so many details and color under the little flower head. You just have to turn it upside down and you'll discover a world you've seen all your life but never looked at it.

Snowdrops are geourgeus and your pictures are great. It will take a few months until we can find snowdrops here in Stockholm.

We also have to wait a little bit, love especially the fotos with the inside look at snowdrops.

The snowdrops are gorgeous, pure and innocent. This is my first time participating and I love this meme.

How sweet and beautiful they are. Fantastic shots, Maia.

So beautiful and innocent. You are right Maia, sometimes we only see at a flower from above while even more beauty could be hiding if we would just take the time to stoop down and look.

Snowdrops already - wonderful! Puts a spring in my step (if you'll excuse the pun) just looking at your beautiful photos.

I've never seen one of those in person, but the center and the deep lines of the petals are both spectacular!!

Gorgeous view from below! I discovered that through my dogs. They have the best seat in the house which is why I learned to crouch and look from their perspective and see magic!

It had never occurred to me to look so closely at snowdrops. Anyway, the camera sees what we normally do not. Thanks for opening our eyes. Great details.

So lovely! I never can see them in this part of the planet. Thanks for sharing.

came via Jama's,

the lychee is not a citrus.

is the sole member of the genus Litchi in the soapberry family, Sapindaceae. It is a tropical and subtropical fruit tree native to China, and now cultivated in many parts of the world. The fresh fruit has a "delicate, whitish pulp" with a "perfume" flavor that is lost in canning, so the fruit is mostly eaten fresh.[2]
