These Snowdrops grew wild on our place in Florida. When we moved, I took some with me...

I shared some with my Daddy who loved them as much as I do.

They make me smile every Spring.

I'd tried all week to shoot them without blowing the whites. Finally, on the last day of submission, there was an overcast day. I held a black posterboard over it all inside a tent... and it worked.

Or... I guess it worked.

You tell me. *grin*

My guess is a 5.732, but I want it to be higher. Don't we all....

I loved this one -- the background just seemed washed out or over exposed or something. I didn't need it black, but I wanted it a little darker. Love the pitcher and the flowers!!

This is so very beautiful, and a artistic way to illustrate the number 13.
