Early Spring in Oregon

I took this picture about one hour ago in front of my apartment building.   It is early springtime in Oregon.  

The crocus are blooming and the daffodils are just about to open.  There will be massive blooming of daffodils in about a week.   Sure feels good when the flowers begin to bloom.   It is still cold but the afternoons get a bit warmer.  

The daylight is coming a bit earlier and the sunset is a bit later.  I sure do appreciate this longer days part of the year in preference to the November and December shortening of days.

I will post pictures of daffodils in a week or so.   That is one of my favorite times of spring.   There are daffodils everywhere in Oregon.  Both in peoples yards and even in the wild.
