Signs of Spring!

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.
~Ruth Stout

I'm thinking about doing a series this week, fully dedicated to the signs of spring. This is another sunfilled spring-shot, I love these Croscuses! This picture is especially for my followers who are still snowed in.
I played a little bit with the focus today, I hope you like it!

It looks a lot better with the magnifying glass...
what a beautiful flower.

Hi Geertje, I love the idea of doing a series on spring. Go for it I'd say! I'm sure that will help get us in the mood :-)

I'm so jealous of your budding yard! I keep staring at the ground, but we only have some little lilies poking through so far. Beautiful!

You did it again, Geertje! Thanks for the spring shot!

@sarasdadandmom I walk everyday in my garden to take a look at them, I like them too, thanks!
@raymond Thanks for supporting my idea! I think it will be harder when the weather changes, we'll see...
@wenzi @remcogreutink Thanks, the focus was a bit of an experiment, I'm glad you like it!
@Cherrill Thanks! We also have stunning weather, I hope it will stay...
@lislee75 I did that too a month ago, spring will come! thanks!
@roejan I know, not to much of the same thing? Thanks!
@bluemoon I'll sure try! I've made a beautiful shot late this afternoon and I'll post it tomorrow, maybe... this series is especially made for you (and the other people still snowed in)! Thanks!

I think it`s great. Beautiful light

Leuk gedaan die focus op de achterste bloemen.
Heerlijk he, die zon en de bloemen die overal gaan bloeien!

Well, we're certainly not snowed in but I love it just the same. Have always liked crocuses as one of the prettiest of spring flowers.
March 8th, 2011  
Pretty! I love how the sun shines down onto the flowers :D I'm so excited for spring!
March 9th, 2011  
Yay!

That series will make me totaly jealous! Love the focus and colors!

This is so pretty! I like how you focused on the flowers in the back of the shot. I like your idea of a series of the signs of Spring too!

I love crocuses and I like your perspective on these, great shot.

@marja @mikichelle @pyrrhula @madiebee @pfmandeville @kerrym @anoeska @hinhoutbay Thank you so much! I love the sunshine, it makes that spring-feeling. Don't be jealous, we also have some clouds and rain...
@halkia Dank je! Het viel gelukkig mee, vanmiddag scheen de zon alweer!
@girlie Ok, I can see why it's also nice for the people on the other side of the world, where autum falls... Thanks!
