The only blooming trees in Moscow

It's still winter here (as anyone who has been around me for five minutes can attest - I grumble about it all the time).  But we came across some trees in full bloom last weekend.

These are metal trees installed by the city to hold padlocks placed there by lovers who inscribe them with their names.  The trees were put there to stop people from padlocking the bridge.  I had to laugh at Tikhon and Evgenia's outsized purple padlock, though.  Guess they wanted to stand out.
