On Sunday I walked up the Astoria hill and around one of the residential areas. I love this transitional shot, showing the moss from the torrents of winter rain and also a bush filled with spring flowers. In fact, I was surprised at how many green shoots and new flowers I saw out today. It seems that only yesterday it was winter. I'm sure the seasons will jockey for awhile before it feels like spring has sprung.

I took today's photo on 12th Street approaching this intersection with Grand. Check out the top and the bottom photos on the linked post. Here you will also see the lovely green house that peeks into the current photo on the upper right. I took some more photos of the house on Sunday; maybe I'll post one tomorrow.

sometimes I noticed buds in the first week of January. It is really a short winter unless you consider winter the rainy season in whch case it can sometime go from mid sept- to july!

Beautiful, Sheryl. You're very fortunate there, as most folks are looking at lots of winter before they see anything budding!

Very pretty! Enlarging your photo made it even more striking!

This is good, I have yet to see some transition here, but probably it's too cold and I'm not going out enough.

Our Spring (yes, we have one) has begun. Several trees are flowering and the grass needs to be mowed more often.
