I am really excited to be participating in this photography exercise with Alison and Greta

 It's a great excuse to get outside with my camera.
Well, except this week.
The prompt is Flower.

 I got snow.
There be no flowers.
Well, at least any new flowers that I can take pictures of with my new Canon Rebel.

But old flowers.....and an old iPhone 3GS?
That I had.

And I could really use a dose of Spring these days.
My Lilac bush -- this is how I know Spring has arrived!

creeping Phlox - another sure sign of Spring
Periwinkle mixes with red and yellow primrose

I cannot wait to be out in my garden this year!
If my crappy iPhone 3 camera (no flash) can take these -- I cannot wait to see what the macro lens of my Canon can do!

I know it's early to be thinking:  but, what first signs of Spring will you capture?
