Wordless Wednesday - Spring Is On It's Way


All photos taken by me @ The San Francisco Botanical Gardens. Three separate days and three different trees. Enjoy!

The crocus are in bloom here. Above freezing temps are melting the snow. Warm-weather birds are beginning to appear. (No robins -- yet.) Spring will arrive here in a few weeks.

Gorgeous photos! Are they magnolias? I love the smell of these flowers in the air.

The so many variables that make a day and a tree will in the end, make each day and each tree so unique and never a duplicate of another. ~bangchik

Three seperate days and three different trees, with single message: spring is back soon.

Kass said...

People keep saying that and your pictures testify to it, but when, when? The anticipation is killing me.

Emm said...

Oh, these pictures are gorgeous! Especially the first one! I cannot wait until blossoms come to our trees.

Beautiful photos. It is finally warm - in the 50's here. I'm trying not to get to comfortable as it's still early.

Spring flowers lift the spirit. I'm glad you're having Spring in San Francisco.

Delightful post! I don't see many trees in the desert that have big blossoms like those. Yes, spring is near!

I am getting the same blooms around the neighborhood. It's such a lovely sight to see because spring is just around the corner.

OMG, I love these photos!
I have always wanted to visit San Francisco and the botanical gardens was on the 'must see' list!
No signs of spring here yet - it's still snowing.

Beautiful shots...they remind me of Ruma's ume blossoms. In Georgia, the jonquils and daffodils were popping up everywhere.
