Yep, your photos confirm that it's still Winter....

I think we're both in the same general latitude. Our sky's are grey and the trees are bare. The big difference, I think ,is that the ground is bare here-no snow. but the colors are pretty drab. I've managed to take a few photos of croccus starting to bloom and the Daffodils are starting to poke thru. Not much else though.

Nice pics.

Stay warm. Before you know it, Spring will be here!

If you want to get some spring, visit a local park that has a green house or hot house that is open to the public...I'm north of you, and I went to a local one two weeks ago where it was so warm I had to take off both my jacket AND my sweater...it was great being able to walk around in short sleeves, never mind all the flowers and green that's there.

Only issue is these places are divided off into hot/humid/cool environments, so you have to wait for your camera lens to defog when you change environments (especially when first entering the building)..

If we get another major snowstorm I'm going back there on a weekday and spend the entire day there relaxing on one of the benches by the fountain.

Do not be jealous, Versailles, today there was 1 cm snow here and a terrible "mistral", a fierce cold nord wind of 5 degree C and 40 MPH. It only lasts 2 or 3 days and only at daytime. But still, for here very [email protected]#$% cold.
