The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.

    This is one of the best snowdrop pictures I have seen, Cherie. They are so difficult to photograph with all that white – difficult to get proper definition

    So true.
    Beautiful photo too.

  3. True but you don’t see with your eyes.
    You see with your heart, right? ;o)

  4. Actually we see with what is mysteriously created in the deep darkness at the back of our brain, but eyes do assist in sending appropriate messages into that strange darkness… and thinking with new thoughts is vital too. “New eyes”? A mistranslation? The same old eyes with a different mental attitude.

    Astrid and I saw our first snowdrops of the season the other day, Cherry. I LOVE them…something I never saw in America. Gorgeous shot of these beauties!

    I love the POV of this wonderful picture. Snowdrops, I never get tired of looking at them.
    I scrolled through your blog and each time I am impressed with you fabulous shot.
    LOVE the ‘conversation’ picture, with the golden thingies on top of the gate.
    Have a wonderful day. Still cold here…….

    I went to visit a National Trust garden recently with more than 200 varieties of snowdrops, I must write it up. I love Helabores too.
