Monochrome Madness 3-47

I’ve found these tiny blossoms on our monthly photographers roundtable (photowalk) last Saturday. They are similar to snow drops, but the blossoms a bit thicker and shaped like a bowl turned upside down. Snowdrops instead, are more slender and elegant. Just like comparing and apple to a pear. Apart from this, they have many similarities in their appearance. Follow my link back to a past post, showing the snowdrops. But, they are not related to each other. The next relative ist the Amaryllis.

Here they are called Märzbecher (Leucojum vernum). März = March and Becher = cup, bowl, goblet, mug, can. Their english name is spring snowflake or simply snowflake. According to Wikipedia, they are native to south Europes floodplain and mixed deciduous forests, but you can also find these strong protected spring plants in some regions in Germany and in gardens.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!
