Signs of spring

I know I may be tempting fate, but I think spring may be here. Now I'm not one of those people who hate winter (in fact I can bear the winters here a lot better than the hot and humid summers), but who doesn't love the first signs of spring?

2. Our plum tree is flowering:

3. Farmers are working down the ground:

4. Small boys are running around parks without coats:

And just to help you understand my excitement about all this, here is the view we had from our dining room last Thursday:
