TOO EARLY FOR SPRING


Yesterday I went out to our backyard and was surprised to see our plum tree budding already.
The whole tree is alive with little bouquets of green nubs.
To see the detail just click on the photo to enlarge it..

What a beautiful sight! I only hope it isn’t budding too early and that there will not be frost later on. Beautiful photo!

Don't you just LOVE looking for signs of spring? I can hardly wait!

Congratulations on your 45th and it was so nice that you could go back to your honeymoon spot!

I wish I would start to see signs of Spring. The temps are finally improving...even going to be warm this week...I cannot wait!

WOW I guess they have been fooled by all your sunshine and good weather. I hear it is getting cold though and snow is expected at the lower elevations. HURRAY for snow.. :) :)
Nice shot though and hope they make it to flowering.. Aloha, Renee :)

We say that the almond tree is the bride of Spring because her first flowers grows in the snow.
