Buds on the maple tree

Get Pushed Challenge #449
My Get Pushed Partner challenged me to portray "Spring". I used to love to lie on my sofa when it was still pretty cold and look out the window. I see these buds on the maple tree and know that indeed, spring was on its way.
@365anne This is a rather simplistic portrayal of spring, but it brings up fond memories. Thank you for your challenge.

Well the temperatures here are giving us the feel of Spring but you never know when we might get one of those late snowstorms. I'm not counting maple buds just yet! Nice shot!

Beautiful blues sky and a great perspective and light for your springtime view!

It will be stunning when the buds open. Not long now.

@wakelys Thank you. I should have used a different lens so the buds would have been clearer.
@haskar Yes it is optimistic. Even if we get more winter weather, this tree has started down its path to spring. Thank you.
@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry. The whisper of spring.
@olivetreeann This tree seems to bud out early. I seem to recall looking at after a snow and puzzling as to what those were and realizing they were leaf buds. Life does go on. Thanks Ann.
@grammyn "Carolina" blue sky as they say around here. Thank you Katy.
@thewatersphotos Thanks Gary. "Carolina" blue sky.
@kjarn Thanks Kathy. The view brought back some good memories. @jamibann Thank you Issi. I always enjoyed looking up into this tree in all seasons.
@pusspup Winter's not over yet, but nonetheless, spring is coming. @johnfalconer I know that, and that season has it's own beauty. @craftymeg Thank you very much. It's been a cold and wet winter here. So it's nice to get that breath of spring.
@365anneThank you Anne. I took more photos and may post them later this week or next. I'll tag you just because you gave me such a nice challenge.
@s4sayer It's a great tree. A good place for birds. It gives nice shade. And I will miss it because there's none to compare at my new home.
