Sure Signs Of Spring

For the last 13 years I have eagerly awaited the beginning of the blooms on this gorgeous tree outside the doors at work. It's always a hopeful sure sign of Spring. This winter has seemed particularly long - or maybe it's just that I feel like every winter seems longer ! Yesterday was the first really Spring like day we have had. Warm enough to have the windows all open to allow all that glorious clean, fread air in ! I escaped to take some photos twice during the day. Rain is forecast for tomorrow (Friday - but I will have these photos to look at now. I put my first hummingbird feeder of the year up this week too. I expect the males to begin arriving soon - generally they are here at least by Saint Patrick's Day. I wanted to be ready to welcome them 'home' Happy Friday to all !

Gerat photos! My eyes are ready for Spring even if my allergies are never ready! I'm looking forward to putting my hummingbird feeders up too.

Your photo of the flowers is exquisite. I especially love the blurred background which make them seem even more delicate.

There are few more satisfying sights than a really big old gnarly tree!

Nice photo!
