When we last spoke with k~owl, the sprouts had just appeared in early January. Here is what has been happening since then, with reference to this February 5, 2010 image: Actually I can’t tell you much new about the photo – I used the same gear as I did in the other picture (Canon 40D, 50mm+macro lens, ring flash). My poor daffodils are experiencing an extreme winter, like the rest of Europe – snow since Christmas, unusually low temperatures and little sunshine. But at least it looks like the snow is melting at last, so I expect to re-discover them soon (We got 15 cm fresh snow after I took the picture and our current closed snow cover wouldn’t even allow their tops to peep out).
The comment on the photo’s flickr page offers these hopeful words: My daffodil sprouts haven’t been idle under their white blanket. The heralds of spring have re-emerged eventually … and they are singing of better days.
