Reader photo of the week: Are these Sweden's first signs of spring?
Photo: Stephen Cleary

Every week, The Local invites readers to submit their pictures to our photo competition, to bring our audience together from all parts of Sweden.


This week's winner is Stephen Cleary, who snapped this picture of snow drops and crocus on their way up in Bettna, Södermanland.

"Snow has melted away," he writes. "Crispy early mornings but milder days!"
