Here are the first signs of spring in my in-laws garden. Crocus I believe, the tulips will be a couple of more weeks here.

BTW shot with my new 24-135mm Sigma, I like it.

The only flower in my backyardright now is nothing but Dandelion :sad:. Can I substitude an Indoor one? Please?

The amazing thing with this Christmas Cactus is that it's been flowering continuously since early December last year. I have never seen one that bloomed so long but I think this is finally the end of it, for now. The poor plant needs a rest.

Spring, spring, spring at last!

Both pics with Pentax SMC-A* 200 mmf2.8. First one @f13, 1/125, ISO 400. Hepatica nobilis in front, Anemone nemorosa behind. I'dbe happyif someone could tell me their English names. Do you see them in North America?

And this is how many they are. All the woods is (are?) full of them!

Same lens, same settings.

What wonderful flower pictures, all of them!

I'd love to have woods like that to wander around in - the wild areas I frequent tend to either be short of trees, or are the type of pines that have needles that discourage anything else from growing. It must be so peaceful to wander around in them.

Nice!

Maybe you could try to get more nuances in the yellow. Post-processing isn't what I am good at, but there are true masters in that arton this forum. Someoneprepared to meetthe challenge?
