I like to call the early bloomers the Brave. Despite the cold they grow and bloom and promise spring.
Acer saccharinum - I'm always looking forward to the first tree blossoms. Couldn't find a low branch to make a macro shot. :-/
And these are only buds, but they will flower soon enough.
I took these photos yesterday and today. There are even more, like Erica carnea, Corylus or Viburnum × bodnantense. The next days are going to be cold, nights freezing, so spring won't come rapidly, but soon all the colours will be back, covering the greys and browns. And maybe I find more time to photograph this year.
