Saturday Snapshot -- Winter Blooms

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend of family member) have taken. Then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
I don't know how this happened. We've had cold weather since November, but we had a couple of warm days last week. Then the temps dropped back into the teens. Somehow, this small tree, maybe a  pussy willow, decided it might be spring. I wish.
I like the Christmas wreaths in the background because they do not fit with the furry blooms.
In this slightly blurry photo, you can see the red berries on the shrubs, again, not something that should be there when trees begin to bloom.

We have had pear trees blossoming here in North Texas this fall - confused trees indeed!

I love pussy willow trees! We had one in my yard when I was growing up!

Poor tree, I hope it comes back for the spring. It took me a while to find the Christmas wreaths in the first picture- I wasn't expecting them to be on the windows, I don't think I've ever seen wreaths on windows before.

We keep snapping back to cold so I don't think our trees are too confused yet.

The mysteries of nature. My SIL had a rose blooming in early Dec -- here in New England.
