Wow, you've got spring busting out all over! Beautiful images.

Some super shots, here, Vicki. Are you still using the Nikon?

We're missing spring in the mountains. Beautiful images this morning Vicki.

Beautiful shots. I envy your Spring life - we're still mired in browns here. That first picture - what is it? The berries look like garnets, very lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, our seasons march on side by side as always. In these dark February days, those colourful shoots remind us that the tide has turned and we have probably made it through another winter.

Stunning! It's hard to come up with new compliments for your wonderful photography.

I have to admit I cheated. All these things are blooming here and now but I was rushed yesterday and these are images from 2/24/08.

At that time, Martin, I was using either a little Coolpix or a Lumix -- both really nice cameras but not near as nice as the Nikon D90 that took yesterday's shots of the lily.

The little berries are on a barberry bush, Mel. Garnets is how I see them too.

Ain't it grand?

That first photo - wow! Those are some serious thorns. The berries remind me of drops of blood... I imagine that some hapless person or creature ran into this bush.

How lowly to share color while it's gray outside. One of my neighbor's has daffodils in full bloom. Mine are waiting. So something to look forward to.
