Great pictrures Tash. Yesterday I found hints of color and Spring in my back yard...I'm ready!

You are lucky to have bright colored flowers out there. We have deep snow. Event organizers and flower sellers all know that by now everyone is sick of cold weather and snow, so the indoor flower shows and plant catalogs will begin soon back East.

Aren't they unusual? I've never seen a flame tree (though read about them in books.) It was nice coming here, as I just posted some red leaves on my blog too.

Beautiful photos Tash!!! I love the bottom one...the tree against the clouds...and the top one...the color!!!

BTW...be sure to bring sunscreen when you come up here...I think we skipped the rest of winter and are well into spring up here!!!
