Snowflakes, February 27, 2017

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 24, 2017
Snowflakes, Leucojum, are natives of Europe that have been naturalized in many other parts of the world. Snowflake blooms are small; these photos are greatly enlarged.

Snowflakes, Leucojum
To distinguish Snowflakes, Leucojum, from the very similar Snowdrops, Galanthus, remember the six petals on Snowflakes are of equal length, while the blooms of Snowdrops have three short and three longer petals.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

  1. Beautiful pictures!

    Greetings, Sofie #10

  2. Absolutely stunning. thanks for the info about the flowers. Now I want to plant some.

  3. My snowflakes are blooming, too. The only kind of snowflakes that we ever get here.

  4. I love these bells, beautiful flowers announcing the spring. Regards.

  5. ...I've only seen this once back home.

  6. Great captures! They grow well here in New Zealand but I don't seem to have the time or am close enough for photos like yours. I'll have to keep trying.

  7. Remarkable! And a totally new species for me.

  8. Nice shots - they look a lot like snowdrops.
