Photo of the Week – Snow Blooms

Flowers in the Hermitage Courtyard, Amsterdam

The end of March in Europe this year didn’t quite feel like Spring, even though all the flowers of the Netherlands were trying to bloom!  On my way into the Hermitage Museum in Amsterdam to see the condensed and temporarily relocated highlights of the Van Gogh Museum (I’ll take what I can get), it started snowing.  As I rushed inside, I noticed that the courtyard was filled with lovely purple crocuses.  For their sake, the snow was luckily not sticking.

So in honor of this week’s #FriFotos theme “Blooms”, here are those early flowers doing their best to kick-off Spring!
