singularly moved

the appearance of this solitary january flower in my garden shouldn't have surprised me: it is winter jasmine, after all.
and it isn't really MINE, either, having escaped from my neighbour's side of the fence to emerge among my ivy and my snowflakes.
but i love surprises, and, as you may have noticed, there is not much that pleases me more than a splash of unexpected colour as a reward for eyes kept open.


  1. Looks like they sprouted straight from the snow.

  2. Wow, that's snow? It's so light it looks like cotton! What a beautiful shot, at any rate. I love how the white rests so peacefully on top of the delicate flowers. Fantastic shot.

  3. Oh wow. So beautiful and cold!

  4. indeed, always keep our eyes wide open for colourful surprises. i love this capture. good use of the aperture and a great composition of yellow and snow... (hey, i'm a poet!)

  5. I love how you have captured this fugitive beauty.
