Just a quick snapshot from the garden, but I think it turned out quite nice.

Taken with EOS-M and 18-55.

I'm having a problem viewing it.  CR has a image size limit of about 600 X 600 pixels, so that might be a issue.  It downloaded fine.

Spring? what spring? where I live there is no such thing as spring ... but the Govt here buys millions of dollars worth of flowers, every month, from Holland and plants them near roundabouts and traffic dividers etc ... this is a nice thread you've started ... I'll have to move my lazy a55 and make some pics of those flowers ... I'll be back with some pics

Yes I know, I live in Holland. Plenty of flowers here :-)

I have no problems with the image by the way, dunno what could be wrong...

I'm very jealous of your country :)

Me too, no issues with viewing the images.

Anyway, here are a couple of pics as promised  ... unfortunately here in Qatar we don't really have a Spring season, it kinda quickly changes from very mild winter to summer within just a couple of days, always after a massive dust storm (but the Qatari govt does a commendable job in maintaining them in such a harsh dusty environment ... to give you an idea how harsh the climate is here, notice how some of the flowers are dying in the intense heat.) ... since these flowers are bought from the spring season of Holland, I suppose they qualify as spring season pics  ;D

Jealous of all of these... still looks like this here. (made it small so as not to detract too much from all the pretty flowers...)

I can't wait to go to DC in two weeks and see cherries!

Wow, nice pics!

We had some snow here yesterday as well, and it's just above zero here at the moment. But the days are getting longer so the flowers think it's time to come out.

That bee is awesome :-)

Here is my backyard dogwood.  The flowers are open now and turning white, but it has been too windy the last several days to get more pictures.  I used my new Kenko extension tubes with my 50 1.4 for this picture.

Even a humble weed can be a pretty sign of spring.

We're currently going through periods of intensely heavy rainfall with motorways being closed off because of flooding, occasional snowfall as well. Here in Dublin, Ireland.

Doesn't feel like spring here... jealous of all of you with nice spring weather/scenery!

No flooding here in Holland luckily, but it's not very comfortable outside. It's very cloudy, windy and around zero degrees, brrrr....

Love the cherry blossoms and the 'weed' :-) , beautiful pictures!
