Yes, my Pussywillow is starting to flower! I cut these branches before the last two snow storms and brought them in to remind me spring is just around the corner. Brought out some detail in Topaz Adjust, added a Japanese Paper texture and vignette. Taken indoors, natural light.

Anita, I think your macro work is encouraging spring to break out. Nicely composed, exposed with a beautiful background.

I heard you guys are in for more snow though!
