First Signs of SPRING!

Panorama from back porch this morning
It's not as windy as it has been the past few days. If it isn't cloudy, maybe we can warm up a little around here.
There are promising signs that spring is on the way. The days started getting longer December 21st, and already the first trees are starting to bloom.
IF you look closely, these clusters of tiny flowers. If I recall correctly these will soon release copious amounts of powdery pollen that will leave yellow dust everywhere.
This is the beginning of a spring that will spread it's way north, until you can see it too!

Similar to here (SC). We get pine pollen in the spring. Every car is yellow for a couple of weeks.:)

Your tree is cute... the pollen does not sound cute though.
Spring!
Hell, it's still early summer here.

Oh man! We're having "unseasonably warm" weather here, but there's always still February.
