Macro of Chionodoxa...

I found it in the woods.

I am so honored to have my photography featured on the beautiful D-Photo blog today.

Studying is making me more busy than I could expect. I have a huge test today, in Science and I will hopefully get approved. Miss you all my flickr friends.


Spring is here...


Have a wonderful week :)

"Out of the darkness, fretted sometimes in its sleeping,

Jets of sparks in fountains of blue come leaping

To sight, revealing a secret, numberless secrets keeping."

for wishing us all a beautiful blue monday !




Allow yourself...grant yourself the permission to be who you are.

No one else is going to live your life for you, you

have to be the one to live it.~ Bashar

My annual red, white and blue collage for Independence Day in the USA. All from my Lake Tahoe garden, although not all blooming at the same time.


Have a festive July 4! For my American friends, let us remember these founding principles from the Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."


Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for your kind comments, awards and faves -- I appreciate them all.

...and it snowed right after I captured it.

I have long noticed here in Flickr, the magical impact on our Artistic hearts and minds, of the divine combination of the colours blue+white!!! And this is not coincidence! Both colours are considered highly spiritual colours! Have you noticed how serene you feel sitting by a transparent clear blue sea?? Or, gazing up to a blue-blue sky?? Or how happy you feel when you stare at a blue-blue darling bloom?? And, even more, the combination of blue+white works many more wonders in our bodies-minds-spirits!!!


For me, the combination blue+white, means...Greece, Corfu, Santorini, Kefalonia!! Greece is my country of origin, and Corfu island my birth place! Santorini, Kefalonia, and all the rest of the Greek islands are full of blue and white!! Clear blue sea, and ....Light!!! Light reflected on the white traditional picturesque houses!!!! Light emmanated by the brilliant , omnipresent sun!!!! That is why the Greek flag is blue+ white....Oh, well, I am NOT Greco-maniac....I just truly love these specific, lovely places in my country...full of clear blue and pure white...


Now. Returning to our Blue+White Image!!! This darling, tiny blue+white bloom , is called "Chionodoxa", a Greek word! It means "Glory of the Snow" ( Chioni=snow, doxa=glory)!! And ....what an irony... They say , it might ...snow today.!!..Is April in Sprintime, or not ???!!!!!

Chionodoxas, also called "Glory of the Snow". We call them "chios". Easier to say. They come in various shades of blue, pink or white.

If you are not familiar with them, I recommend you get some for your garden, if in a northern climate. They are early, cheerful and make nice little bouquets.

Gloire des neiges / Glory-of-the-snow

Suffice it to say that I recently posted a photo and description of pretty blue Glory-of-the-Snow, Chionodoxa luciliae: For the rest: let the colors speak for Spring!

Glory of the snow (Chionodoxa), is one of the first bulbs to flower in spring and, when planted generously, forms a dazzling carpet of flowers. Chionodoxa forbesii 'Pink Giant' has pink, star-shaped blooms with a paler centre.

Thanks to Sabinche and Mim for identifying these as "Glory of the Snow" or Chionodoxa. I'm just glad there's no actual snow around any more. :-)

is there a common name for these?..... i searched 'blue star' but these were not among any of the pictures i saw......they come from teeny bulbs and are only a couple of inches off the ground, thereby making a beautiful blue carpet right now....found their name googling.....
