We are starting to see a few buds here and there too! I can't wait till spring is in full bloom.

Love the pics!

I hope the frost didn't hurt the little buds. At first I thought they were pussy willows!! :)

They are pussy willows and that's just rain drops sitting on top. You can see a couple drops in mid air too. I thought they were really pretty. I cut some and brought them and some forsythia to "force" a few days early in the house. I can't believe how soft they are.

Nice macro capture of the softness of the pussy willow, and of course crocus is is such a harbinger of spring because it comes up even if there is snow on the ground. I like the white theme as well :-)

Those are SO beautiful!
How do you dew (pun intended) that???

I can't figure out how to use the macro on my camera. In fact, I can't SEE the icon that would indicate it HAS macro...

Sometimes, getting old sucks.
On the other hand, MOST of the time, I love it!

;-)

Beautiful shots! Still don't know where to find pussy willows here, but I'm more than content with the nice green grass that's coming along! Had the horses out hand grazing yesterday, they didn't want to come up for air.

Ed said...

YEAH!!! Pussywillows!! Great shots..:-)

Thanks for the visit. My shots were taken with a 50mm lens at 1.8 so they have a very shallow depth of field. I did do some editing as far as color and light, but the bokeh in the background is just how they came out.
