Default It's spring!

Finally, it's spring here in Germany.
The sun is shining, the air is fresh and warm and people are sitting in outdoor cafés.
And the first flowers start growing and to bloom:

thanks guys!

concerning the horizont: peter is right. these are buildings in the background.

Hey peter, I think you'd become more jealous if I told you that it is warm 23°C here. Just beautiful.

@Yacob:
Yes, I used layers with Photoshop.
Just copied the layer of the original one. Set the layer below to b/w and cut the flower out.

I just had another dump of snow last night

But the spring must be comming, lots of rescue traffic on my scanner(radio). People on skidoos and ATV's going through the lake/river ice on a regular basis it seems.

Aye Peter, I share your annoyance with the weather. Even right now, it is snowing outside my house!
I agree about the picture. Very artistic. It would only get better if you straightened it a little.

thanks gandalf!

Actually I can't straighten it anymore, because I already did. If I'd rotate the picture some more I would need to crop it even closer as it already is.
