Signs Of Spring Week 1...

Last year I joined the Swedish bloggers group Varteckens Utmaning   (see button in my sidebar) to show you the Signs of Spring in my area. If you want to you can join up with her site and show your own Signs of Spring every Monday. It doesn't have to be nature (although that is the most obvious one to choose) but it could also be spring clothes etc. Anything that says: Spring Is Coming!  {smile}

Since it is absolutely pouring outside I have decided to take some more pictures of my Flowering Pear branches. I'm also trying out some new Photoshop techniques on these...

Maybe the effects are a little bit too strong (especially on the first one) but it is so blah outside that I needed something to go 'POP'!  <wink>

So, in completely other news: our weekend on Crystal Mountain was absolutely amazing! I took 350 pictures so it will take me a while to sort through them, but I will try and show some of them to you this afternoon.
See you soon!

PS Word has come to me that you guys have to go through that nasty word verification process in order to comment on my blog. Is that true??? I have not chosen that option since I  strongly dislike these word scramblers myself. Please let me know...
