ABC WEDNESDAY "J" is for "Jump into spring"

"Jumping" into spring is what I've been waiting so long to do. Not a cold weather fan anymore. I just couldn't resist buying snowdrops from this springishly dressed man.... Two bunches for 100 dinars, which is about $1.25.

See other "J's" at ABC Wednesday.

What a great photo.

But I'm interested in the snowdrops. What we call snowdrops are Galanthus nivalis. Those are obviously something else but I can't work out what. Any ideas?

Hi, Scriptor Senex. Just wrote you on your blog. I google-translated 'visibaba', the name for snowdrop in Serbian, and it came up 'snowdrop'. Also googled the Latin name you gave and found photos of the flower I show. Are you perhaps thinking of Edelweiss? Here's a link.

Hello Bibi - no not Edelweiss. Our snowdrops (Galanthius nivalis) look different but perhaps there are more than one sort. Ours have green spots in the middle and seem to have shorter petals than yours but perhaps it's just the angle of the photo.

I don't think I could resist either.
I am so ready to jump into Spring. Great choice for the letter J.

I love fresh flowers in the house! Especially up here...our winter came late and we've got 4 feet of new snow so spring flowers are not going to be out for another couple of months...but we'll have them all summer!!!

Your photo is absolutely wonderful! His friendly expression, the purple coat and the flowers....perfect!!

Alexa said...

And for 100 dinars you got not only two bunches of snowdrops—you also got a charming smile and a wonderful portrait to share with us!

Those are lovely snowdrops. Very pretty against the purple jacket.
