A Spring Snowflake for Winter Solstice

__________________________________________________________________________


"No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden...But though an old man, I am but a young gardener." TJ


Certainly, for those gardeners dreaming of spring and gardening season, a spring snowflake with this dreamy effect reflects our anticipation. Hope, for the day we say, "good-bye snow, hello snowflake".
