Beautiful shot and beautiful colors! We are hovering around zero today, so spring doesn't seem like it is around the corner for us. ;)

I"m with Julie... this has already been a long, cold, snowy winter. That shot is like a little piece of heaven.

i was noticing the buds on our trees this weekend, too...and we just lost some of our leaves about 3 weeks ago! as much as i miss the definite seasons, gotta love our "winter"!

hooray for new growth, though! and a great capture!

Oh how nice - I can't wait - it just started snowing again here so I'll be waiting a bit longer than you by the looks of it - lovely photo!

It IS spring here...temperatures in the mid 60s. I wish for only a tiny bit of cold winter weather.

Beautiful picture. I hope that's part of your 365 Project..I'd love to see it again!

Frankly, I can't believe Spring is just around the corner!!

I'm not ready for spring as we've just experienced only a little winter. I love a fire in the fireplace.

Beautiful photo.
