Different continent for most of you, similar scenario. Spring is taking its time. We had the longest, coldest (for us) and dimmest (least sunny days) winter on record.
Now slowly things come back to what we are used to.

Cotton tree flower

National flower: Bauhinia

Cought those two fellows enjoying themselves in the sunlight (last Sunday)

Kingfisher is just a bit out of range for clear picture (about 120 yards away)

As said, things finally come alive here and blooms are everywhere

Does not mean air-quality is better too. :(

Last but not least; does anyone recognize this plant?

Krista (my daughter) took seeds from what we presumed where dandelions in Austria last year. We germinated some in November and planted. Grew one flowering stalk and started an avalanche of plants sprouting downhill here in the village. Leaves seem to be similar, but the flower is absolutely not. So no clue what we started here. :) :)
