When spring is full of hope by 

Here an early spring picture, taken on a fresh, but bright afternoon at Utrecht yesterday. These lovely old houses standing out so beautifully, were built on a former bastion of the city fortifications that was demolished in the 19th century. The snowdrops and even a few crocusses forward the better times of the year which are clearly coming now,

Taken at Utrecht/The Netherlands, 28th Feburary 2013, 2.51 pm
Panasonic TZ3, 4.6-46 mm at 4.6 mm
F 3.3, 1/500, ISO 100

As a retired historian, I have a wide interest in nature photography. Please also note my second gallery on Redbubble:

    It looks as if your spring is ahead of us in the US…I can’t wait to see the green grass, even if I do have to pay someone to mow it! Very pretty capture.

  • I could not agree more about the grass.

    This is an interesting home – I imagine there is a nice view from the windows.
    Like the drifts of snowbells. We have them blooming
    here in Pennsylvania and New Jersey also.

  • It is really a nice place, and very special in its elevated postion.

    So pretty. Love the snowdrops and crocus showing their little heads on the velvety grass. There is always another beautiful spring to look forward to. x
