Here is some Spring blossom. I love this time of year.

Cherry blossom

Mimosa blossom

In the castle grounds under the glorious cherry tree was this tiny 1/2" yellow flower also declaring the praises of her creator.

Even though we have lots of Spring blossom there are still oranges on the trees in the streets.

Yes, the G9. Nice but with the usual noise problems of P&S cameras.

Now that Nikon have developed the D3 it will only be a few years when compacts and consumer DSLRs are going to make a huge leap forward in terms of image quality. Digital noise is on the way out!

Glory to God though, it's amazing that we can record the wonders of his creation. Let's have some more praise photos everyone!

Adrian went to another town to take these photos. I didn't find out he'd taken pictures of blossom until today and was really surprised to see a tree in full blossom from my balcony this morning.

The two macro shots are my favourites I think. The oranges make me feel hungry.

I like the cherry blossom best. The shadows in it are nice.

Les, get your camera soon so we can see some British blossom. My favourite Spring flowers in the UK are the bluebells but I have not been in the UK during Spring for 14 years. When they come out later in the Spring perhaps you could post some fotos of them.
