Spring is Blooming

I was at Central Park last weekend and flowers and trees were blooming everywhere. It's so refreshing to see colors again. It has been a long, cold winter for us in NYC.

So where would you go to see Spring flowers bloom?

Yeah, I've missed the color and the leaves, too. I'll be going on a group scooter ride to see the tulip fields near LaConner, about 60 miles north of Seattle on Sunday. I might even make a photo or two -:)

That's a beautiful sight for sure. Literally go to the back of my house which backs onto a nature reserve. Bloomin' marvellous sight.

Lovely image, excellent composition.

I saw blooming flowers in a tiny park not far from home.

I live on the edge of a forest in England so there are spring blooms everywhere - it's beautiful. But if I had a choice of where to go and see some more it would be Central Park of course!

Hi! Love your photos. We go to Bath Botanical Gardens to see blossom. We actually had blue skies over Easter... normally rains!

You know what I like about this photo? The BW effect in the background sets off the fabulous daffodils in full color. Mother Nature did a grand job setting this one up for you!

Wonderful photo, Ming!

That is a pretty and welcome sight.

I look out of my front window to see two big cherry trees in full bloom, and out the back there are daffodils. Soon I'll take a trip to the woods up the hill to see the bluebells that form a flowering carpet in May.

when i was in China, I saw the same thing, a lot of trees are literally bald, no leaves just stalks, and then i saw loads of plum flowers (china's national flower) blooming, really beautiful!

This is a WONDERFUL sight, Ming!
I see a lot of flowers blooming here in Verona too!

How beautiful!!! We are having the opposite here in Aus at the moment, the trees are going golden and planning the 'great drop.'

Beautiful! Well we went to Washington DC to see the cherry blossoms to announce spring. Those, a few dogwoods and lots of redbuds. Yeah for spring.
