Debates rage on about when Spring is said to officially start but there seems to be a gathering convention here that it is March 1st. But such things are best left to Nature, as your sweet image shows so well !

@Ronnie 2¢: Yes, the Evergreen Pear trees here in my part of California have their clocks firmly set, and early February it is. :-) Okay by me, I'm always ready for winter's end. :-)

Great photo ! I remember years past the cherry blossoms were blooming in February and we in San Francisco had snow, yes snow. Later the cherry blossoms bloomed again.

So beautiful against the building and sky. Isn't it amazing the surprise each year of these early blooms.

Beautifully framed and composed shot Dulcie! Both the sky and the building contribute wonderfully to this beautiful image! Unfortunately spring is still several months away for us! ;-)

We have had a few warm days. But, I just got the tree guys in Tuesday to clean up the trees damaged by an ice storm a couple of weeks ago. So, winter continues for us. That's a beautiful shot.

These flowering pears, cherries and crabapples and the like do not grow in this part of Florida. I miss their blooming in Spring.
