Summer Snowflake - Leucojum aestivum - ACT - Austalia - 20160830 @ 12:31

There is a sense of tenderness and humility in these small flowers - difficult to say exactly why - perhaps it is the white coloring and the downward facing habit. Their appearance in gardens signals that the worst of the winter weather has passed and that it will soon be springtime.

N.B., Identification of these flowers was kindly supplied by Stephen Hopkins - see comments.

[ Location - Braddon, Australian Capital Territory, Australia ]
