Welcome to February's Serenity Circle. The Serenity circle is a collaborative project consisting of a number of multi-genre photographers from different parts of the world who come together on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and share images relating to peace and tranquillity.I have to admit, I was almost caught unprepared this month. I didn't realise the 3rd Wednesday of the month was almost upon us until late this afternoon! Time to head outdoors. Fortunately, I knew where I was headed, i.e. not far from the house to a spot where I noticed these gorgeous little snowdrops growing along the the banks of a stream a few days ago. It was a little dark under the dense tree canopy, but there were lovely little patches of warm light here and there which I took advantage of.
I really love snowdrops. My father used to grow them in the garden in an old disused water pump under my bedroom window. Whenever I see these little flowers, I think back to those childhood days and remember them fondly - especially the first signs of them peeking out from under the snow.
