Snowdrop Parade

White virginal light

Held aloft in petal lamps

New life from old bones


About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

    these always add charm to graves & apt since the Crimean war gave rise to their introduction – last flower of winter or herald of spring but whatever will always think of your words:” petal lamps” – perfect!

    What a beautiful area. They remind me of fairies dancing around the fields… maybe a fairy conference! 😉 Thank you for your incredible words and photos!

    How absolutely gorgeous. You capture the magic of snowdrops beautifully.

  18. Did you take these recently? If so, how can you be so far ahead of us! No fair. We’re at 42° and you’re at 56° … I don’t get it. We are experiencing our first Vermont Mud Season … it isn’t pretty. Your very pretty Snowdrops have me in a state! Beautiful blooms, beautiful words … a wonderful combination. Thank you.

    • I took these two weeks ago in a woodland at the edge of a sandy beach David…..despite being on the east coast, the Gulf Stream and its air flows keep the whole of the British Isles considerably warmer than it ought to be otherwise… nowhere is very far from the sea which helps too…..unless you travel upwards into the mountains where the snow is still lying deep enough for skiing, only an hour and a half away! We’ve just finished a cold snap this week…..but temperatures are set to rise again over the weekend to around 8/10 Celsius…..the wild garlic is sprouting and the cherry trees are popping blossoms😊

  19. Translucent jewels! Beautiful 🙂
