That's a fantastic photo. I don't mind it that big. In fact, I wouldn't mind a poster-sized version of that picture covering up my orange walls at work. It's so beautiful and restful.

I like it better then the birds. I see enough sparrows, magpies et.al... in my backyard and no flowers in my backyard so I prefer this one at the moment.

WOW,WOW, WOW...you have had a surge of incredibly beautiful creativity. Winter is great for you and your camera. I'm with Steven...it could be poster size!

Wow, that one gets me too because we have crocuses that exact color that come up!

I noticed the little green spikes of daffodil tips starting to come up. It always makes me think of The Secret Garden.

Gorgeous photo, Hans - and even I, who love winter, am well ready for Spring. It's coming. I can tell because the cats now have their afternoon naps in the conservatory, which is not heated apart from trapped sunlight. Be brave, my friend, Spring is on the way!

That really is a wonderful photo... I agree with Steven, it'd be great poster-sized!

I looked out the window a few days ago and was utterly dumbfounded to see that the crocuses had started blooming!

Of course, now it's gotten cold again - not freezing, but it's going to be raining for the next week. Stupid April showers... don't they know it's March?

I'm longing for spring too, but it'll be another month at least before all the snow's gone, more with all the night freezes...

My sister and I went to the botanical garden on Wednesday and the lawn there was absolutely covered in crocuses. Purple, white, purple-and-white, and gold. We were blown away.
