I haven’t done a Joys of the Public Domain/Creative Commons post in a while! Today, some fleurs.
Cherry blossoms are kinda the archetypical spring flower.

Much earlier in the spring (at least in my part of the world) there are pussywillows and forsythia
And you really know things are warming up when the bulbs start appearing!
