Spring 2013 is extremely cold, almost -10°C every day and its already 18th on March. Fortunately hyacinths in my greenhouse don't fear no cold at night and they're in the full bloom already. These photos are taken on K-5 with DA 17-70mm SDM lens and 2× + 10× magnification loupes screwed on filter thread. This creates such a soft fadeout focus outside sharp center point of the glass loupes attached, almost pinhole effect.
April is no different from the ones during the last 5 years. This season it is the same at 19th as it was on 10th of april in 2012, so no big difference.
