Announcing spring

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 18 February 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Winter lasts long this year in Belgium... but there is hope ... Winterbuds are ready to burst. This one is from Euonymus europeaeus (Wilde kardinaalsmuts in het Nederlands), one of the first plants here to spread its leaves in spring. It won't be long now ...

Super simplicity, I love the green background. I still don't feel closer to spring here though!

@Curly: Lets hope the real spring arrives soon ! Today the last snow melted here - just wait for the sun to come now.
Thank you for your visit and compliment.

@Julie Brown: Thank you, Julie. The background is just plain grass :-) but due to limited DOF it is faded.
