[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These early Spring wildflowers did not seem to be bothered by our recent snow fall. There were many of them bloom

Olsynium douglasii (Sisyrinchium), common name: Grass Widow.

There were quite a few blooming in the Tom McCall Nature Reserve at Rowena Crest.

The blooms look visibly stressed under snowy conditions. Still they hold on, insisting on heralding the onset of spring.
Nature's resilience fills me with a sense of wonder.
Great picture, Julie. TFS.

Hi Julie, what a lovely image here. The flowers look so good growing through the snow - hurrah, winter is ending for you!
TFS, Janice

I'm glad I looked at your photo before posting, you chose the exact same flower grouping as I did to post first. I'll have to wait a few days I guess :-) This grouping looks very well balanced to me and your new camera does a great job. Well done.

This is a nice shot of these beauties. I see we were both out and about yesterday due to our recent unusual heavy snowfall. We went snowshoeing in the Cascades and I had fun with my camera too! How do you like your new canon? I am still camera searching...it will probably be Canon but I am baffled by lenses. There are so many! Any advice?

Hi Julie,
I love this wonderful flowers, the colour is beautiful. I also had this theme today - hoping spring will come soon ;-)
Thanks for sharing
