The bushes that I mis-identified as Hawthorn,(Grouser thinks that they might be members of the Prunus family), are now really popping all over the place
Wow, that's a place I'd love to be right now! - Love the composition and focus!

Lovely Chris. Definitely Prunus. Go back in a few months and see what sort of fruit it has on it. I'm betting almond or possibly an early plum.:)
17 Mar 2011 9:54am
At least spring is here again ! nice picture .
17 Mar 2011 10:14am
Beautiful welcome to nature....Lovely session.

Le printemps est déjà là... très belle image
17 Mar 2011 10:25am
Beautifully composed, lovely shot. Could be a cherry tree that would be my guess
17 Mar 2011 10:27am

17 Mar 2011 11:03am

Fabulous crisp white flowers and buds! Lovely depth of field as well.
17 Mar 2011 12:49pm
A feast for the eye!
17 Mar 2011 1:24pm
I like the combination of buds and blossoms. A very attractive shot.
17 Mar 2011 1:56pm
You certainly must be a few degrees warmer Chris, the crocus have only just emerged up here!!

@Curly: According to Steven Fry on QI, Spring travels North at 2/3rds of a mile an hour. I reckon South Shields is 260 miles due north of Reading which makes 390 hours or 16 days. These shots were taken on Sunday, so I reckon you should be in the same position at the end of the month. Please let me know if the "Fry formula" works!!!
Welcome Prunus, and a special hello to the TZ20
17 Mar 2011 2:29pm
@CATCHLIGHT: Yep, it turned up on Tuesday-a very different beast from its parents and grandparents-still trying to get my brain around it
Wow, lovely blossom clouds!
You are a few weeks ahead compared to us over here...:-0
(but the pruned branches are in bloom inside;-))

17 Mar 2011 3:51pm
beautiful. we are a little bit behind you on these blossoms. fine selective focus
17 Mar 2011 4:11pm
17 Mar 2011 5:24pm
This has to be the ultimate Spring image, absolutely wonderful, fresh, pure and promising.
17 Mar 2011 5:46pm
it's really beautiful
17 Mar 2011 6:19pm
Beautiful and I think Grouser is right, it is one of the prunus. All going well there should be a good supply of fruit later in the season. They are very pretty- I like your description of them popping, it looks a bit like that.
17 Mar 2011 7:40pm
Beautifully heralding spring. Very good photograph.
17 Mar 2011 7:51pm
Curly beat me to it!
17 Mar 2011 8:09pm
Saw quite a few of these today. Spring is in the air!!!!!!!!!!!
17 Mar 2011 8:54pm
They are beautiful it's a sure sign of warmer weather
17 Mar 2011 9:47pm
