Beautiful pix.
It's the beginning of Spring here, too. In a couple of weeks, the fields will be intensely blue, carpeted with Texas bluebonnets.

An early SPRING has arrived in the year of Boar.

We had the hottest CNY and all flowers were blossomed before CNY. :-( e.g. a peach blossom and daffodil..

qausar9 - tell that to moody ;^)

PP - yes, here too. weather yesterday was more like we'd expect in April.

Didn’t the Groundhog say we’d get more winter…?!

The layers in the photograph create so many different patterns. Beaudy!
Spring? What's that? It is the end of summer here and supposed to be autumn. The trees and plants have lost the plot and some are flowering when they shouldn't be.

Wendy - thank you. weather up here has been off too with a warm winter and trees blooming early.
