I think I am turning into a galanthophile. A snowdrop fanatic. I just can't resist them, and at the moment they are everywhere - carpets of snow, strewn throughout the woods around here.
And by way of a change - an early pink blossom.
Across the valley, on the skewbald hills of the Lammermuirs, I think they were burning off areas of heather. When I took this photograph I hadn't noticed the lovely range of late winter colour, throughout the trees in the foreground.
