February blossoms

molly laying on her back naked in the snowdrops

“A small bird twitters on a leafless spray,
Across the snow-waste breaks a gleam of gold:
What token can I give my friend to-day
But February blossoms, pure and cold?
Frail gifts from Nature’s half-reluctant hand…
I see the signs of spring about the land…
These chill snowdrops, fresh from wintry bowers,
Are the forerunners of a world of flowers.”
~ Sarah Doudney

I took this image on Monday. It was a beautiful sunny day and I couldn’t resist getting out for a walk. Afterwards I returned to the car and drove to this secret little spot that I had discovered in previous springs to sometimes be the source of beautiful snowdrops. Don’t ask me why some years there are more than others but this time, as you can see, there was a thick carpet of them.

I spent a while taking images for my 365 Project but then decided it was time to try some self portraits. I got the shot all set up, double checked there was no one around and whipped off my clothes. For a few moments laying this one the ground I could actually feel a bit of warmth from the sun but when I sat up to change position the wind that was tearing across the field cut into my core. As a result I only managed 3 images before I was literally shivering and had to dive back into my kit.

This was the first of the three images and definitely the one I like the best. I think you can tell from my nipple just how damn cold it was, and I like that you can just see my belly button piercing and the marks from the stitching on my scar that runs around the left side of my tummy. Oh and for those who are worried about the snowdrops I actually made sure that I laid down where there were gaps in the flowers. If you know Snowdrops you will know they grow in little clusters.

    I love everything about this image, but my first thought was “she must be freezing – it’s been so cold this week!”
    Glad you got that shot even if you only managed three. It was well worth it! Beautiful, the promise of spring!

    Beautiful photo, makes me want to embrace spring, or perhaps that’s just you?

  • missy

    Wow this is an amazing photo. I would never have the guts to take something like this but you look absolutely gorgeous.I love the look of your skin next to the flowers and the little spots of earth on your leg.

  • Cara Thereon

    I really really really wanna lay my head on your breast. Your nipples is just way too enticing

    • Jim Serdut

      can I join you?????????????

  • ancilla ksst

    So beautiful! We are still MONTHS away from having any flowers.

  • Indigo Byrd

    What an exquisite image! (I love the dusting of dirt on your knee). And brownie points for courage under fire, thanks for bothering – lesser, less fierce photographers would have quailed at the prospect!

      I rarely quail at that prospect of getting a good photograph unless it is cold winter rain. That is just too much for me


  • Malflic

    Flowers so early in the spring/late winter. Very Jealous.

  • Bibulousone

    Ah, Molly. The hardships you go through, to create these wonderful images for us.
    This one is fantastic.

    I really love this picture Molly. You look amazing, your skin glows! And the detail of dirt on your knee is just perfect!

  • Posy Churchgate

    I love snowdrops! I love that this seems to be shot at night, I admire how free you are with nudity. A sexy and yet earth mother kind of image!

    • Jim Serdut

      lovely comment………..

  • May More

    This is just beautiful – I was only marvelling at the number of snowdrops the other day and you look perfectly natural laying among them x

  • Author C.P. McClennan

    Simply beautiful and warm…which we need in these parts.

  • Exposing40

    This is beautiful and full of joy and hope and expectation for me new season. I sat in my garden with a cup of tea yesterday and could just feel the warmth beginning to come into the sun. Xx

  • Annie Savoy

    There’s something lovely but sinister about this picture, the black background perhaps… It looks like credits for a David Lynch movie and I want to know what happens next.

  • Silver Eagle

    Beautiful. I have longed to make a “snow angel” this winter but the only time I could have managed a nude picture it was about 5 degrees Farenheit!

  • Julie

    This is such a beautiful image. I love that the first flowers of spring are now emerging. Great photo, and well done for braving the elements.

  • Dave

    What an absolute delight of a photograph. I pass a wood regularly and keep meaning to stop and take s photo. I shall imagine you lying in a perfect snowdrop posey whenever I pass now.

  • Jo

    My favorite thing about this photo is the dirt on your knee! I love that you are so comfortable being in nature – not just driving through it, but feeling the earth, plants, and sunshine around you and being a part of it. Pretty gutsy for such a cold day – the things we are willing to do for a good image. 😀

      gasp! yes

    Such a glorious, warming picture despite the time of year in which it was taken. A sensuous body reacquainting with nature after the dark of winter – very cheering!

    I’m glad you braved the cold to get this photo, because it’s absolutely gorgeous. I love how real it is: the natural shadow patterns on your body are beautiful and the mud on your leg feels super sexy to me. As for your hardened nipple? Utterly enticing. x

    A lovely lovely image, makes me think of the song Field of Gold

    Lovely Sunny Sideboob!!

  • curiousclitty

    Beautiful photo. ?

  • Victoria Blisse

    First thing I thought was ‘Good God, she must have been freezing!’ Then I appreciated the beautiful flowers and naturalness of your pose.

  • Bee

    A sure sign that the first glimpses of spring being on its way…I can’t even begin to imagine how cold you were…what artists must do for their cause though 😉

  • Marie Rebelle

    Gorgeous image! I really wish we had more quiet places here where I can get naked outside for photos. Unfortunately…

  • LittleSwitchBitch

    Just so much WOW!!! I love the grittiness of the knees – I do wonder where you scrummaging around on them first. Your body is just simply incredible here – the light, the pose, how delicate your skin looks. Perfection x
