Another Sky Watch all around the world. The team of Sandy, Klaus, Louise, Ivar, Wren and Fishing Guy host Sky Watch for us every week.

My theme for today is Spring Is Wonderful. No more doom and gloom. Spring!!

You're right, not a bit of gloom there! And those buds look like they're getting ready to burst into leaf!

Really nice shots .. love the crow(?) eating the plane tree .. what are those called anyway ... balls?

Dewdrop said...

Spring is amazing! Nothing like it at all! New Life! New Beginnings! New Growth! Great captures!

How nice to see the birds and the buds on the tree! What kind of tree makes those round seed balls?

Thanks for asking that question on my blog. I answered it on my post and in the comments section. It was a good question and I am sure others will want to know the answer. I actually got the idea from TR Ryan in "The Farway, Nearby" blog.

So, no more gloom and doom for you? Well, I have some coming tomorrow!

Happy spring to you, Bobbie. I was wondering what those ball fruits were, too.

looks like the one black bird is contemplating dropping a sycamore ball bomb on someone?
