Hooray for Spring!

After a long, cold rainy winter, BAM! - two weeks ago everything started blooming at once.  Daffodils opened their yellow faces and all the trees in Portland suddenly burst into full flower mode.

It was actually sunny this morning, so I took advantage of the good light to capture a few images of the flowers now blooming in my neighborhood.

























I know you're probably getting tired of my endless skiing posts, so hopefully these photos are a pleasant alternative.

  9. That's all so beautiful. We've gone in the other direction - we had a warm, sunny winter, and on Friday we had 11 inches of snow with more big storms on the way.

  14. Nice photos of flowers that we are so happy to see. I did a bit of photography once I got home from a walk. Then it started to rain so glad I was home and indoors I went with some rain on camera. Hope to get that on my blog soon. I enjoy your snow/ski photos too! Have a good week!

  16. Such beautiful spring photos, LInda! We are almost there--the trees are beginning to blossom and we finally had some good soaking rain that reduced our fire danger. I am so relieved!

  19. Well I could say I was tiring of your skiing posts but only as its been such a snowless winter over here and I was very jealous! :)
    Some wonderful close ups here. I love the spring flowers and like the snow I'm ver envious of the wonderful colour displays you have in your mountains meadows through the spring and summer. Keep these (and the skiing posts!) coming :)
