In my part of the world, chionodoxa closely follow siberian squill, both of which peak as the crocus are finishing. I have thousands of scilla siberica, courtesy of the lot behind me, from which they obligingly spread. Chionodoxa also grow prolifically, so I bought some, and after a decade or so, I have at least hundreds:) Here's a conventional shot of a clump, showing off the pretty white eyes:
However, the rain and cloudy weather continued to oblige, and I felt these 2 moodier shots taken a couple of days later were more interesting.
This one in particular looks nothing like reality, though the settings are exactly the same as the picture immediately above

That painterly wash of light in the upper left corner inspired me to make this page;)
