3/7/09 Four weeks later after posting a remark, "Was Punxsutawney Phil wrong?" These have actually been open for 2 days, but there hasn't been enough light for a good shot. My wife returned home after an errand to find me on my stomach, with minipod, out in the front flower bed.

    Yeah, spring is here! Here it is snowing outside. Typical Colorado spring weather. We can get really big snowstorms in March or April. We need moisture, so it's very welcome.

    Phil wasn't wrong in our area, snow on and off for the next 3 days here. I love daffodils and crocus too. They just symbolize "Spring's Essence" Lovely.

    I am glad your wife found you on your stomach taking pictures and not just lying there from falling down:) One thing about photography is that it is good exercise for us senior citizens and also a fun hobby to keep us active...Beautiful picture, Don!

    Gorgeous shot, love the muted colors and background bokeh. The lighting, as usual, is right on target and beautifully spotlights the flower focal point. The softness and blur creates such a calming, comfortable feel. Well done!
