Spring is blossoming all over the Thompson - Okanagan.

Sunny skies and warm temperatures are getting people outdoors to capture some colourful scenes of the season this week.

Many blossoms are peaking in Okanagan orchards this week, as evidenced by these images captured by South Okanagan photographers Meghann Fletcher and Ron Hiller.

Even the birds seem to be enjoying the weather as Shae Fischer caught a local quail, seemingly with a 'spring' in its step, above.

Jason Foster captured these Arrowleaf balsam root (Okanagan sunflowers) — "coming soon to a hillside near you" — recently posting the photo to Kamloops photographers Facebook page.
