Salem Spring - DA 20-40 Ltd
9 months ago

Took a brief walk around the Salem, Oregon Capitol Mall today.  The pink cherry blossoms were just starting to rain down and the daffodils were up in force.  The day was so nice I really wanted to just keep walking . . .

Thanks for looking.

Very nice shots.  I have a hard time accepting them since in MI we have more snow forecast, below zero forecast, etc, etc.  Had one day this year above 50F and way too many at -20F and below.  Cherry blossoms, daffodils and magnolia blossoms just do not seem like they will ever happen this Spring.

Thanks posting.

It's great to see spring happening somewhere! We've got robins now, new last week, but so far it's still below freezing. Nice set! I especially like the composition of the third one.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks Jim and f22.  Sorry about cold elsewhere - if I could wave a magic wand and warm up the vortex areas, I'd do it.

Nice shots . . .even thought they are something that someone  surrounded by 2+ feet of snow and temperatures still below freezing really wants to see! I bet we are a good six weeks away from seeing the flowering of even the early wild plums.

Here in Northern Indiana it is still snowing.  Nice to see that spring is actually happening in other parts of the universe.

I spent the weekend in the NY-CT area and, while it was nice, Lake Whitney in New Haven was still mostly frozen and snow was forecast for this week.  I do enjoy living in a place where snow is mostly elective - I can go to the mountains anytime year-round if I want snow . . .
