Slow in coming this year, a few spring blooms are finally hereI love this photo of this swan showing how agile it's neck is. Notice that the water is not frozen. But moving clockwise, last weekend we still had ice on a local reservoir in the town just south of East Gwillimbury. Note that the willows are growing yellower by the day and daffodils in sunny places on the south side of buildings) are forming buds.
Azaleas have buds since last autumn but they do seem to be swelling... but that may be my imagination living in hope. Galanthus (snowdrops) are blooming as are purple crocus.
