Hurray, this Spring Snowflake (German: Märzenbecher) is the 500th post in my series “Shot in Franconia”.

A spring snowflake is a flowering plant that blooms in the spring. It is a member of the genus Leucojum, which consists of six species of plants. The spring snowflake is native to Europe, Asia, and North America. It is a bulbous plant that typically grows to a height of 15-30 cm. The leaves are linear and the flowers are white with six petals. The flowers are borne on stalks that emerge from the ground in early spring. The plant is named for its resemblance to a snowflake.
