|After some cold periouds in December, winter is giving way to early spring - earlier than usual this year. I cought this budding branch in the low mountains at an altitude of about 800 meters. The tree is most probably white poplar (populus alba).|

Hi Antony definatley a Popular but not Alba the twig colour is wrong and so isthe bud shape.
My best educated guess for where you are is the Black Popular (Populus nigra) though there are a couple of sub-species that unless you can see the whole try you cannot name because the differance in shape though I would probably rule out the upright growing Lombardy popular because of your thoughts that it might be P. alba which is also a spreading tree.
As to No winter early spring , so far in the UK we have seen no real winter and in sheltered spots spring flowers are starting to flower I already have primroses into flower since November.
TFS yours Robert

Hi Anto. Good clear capture of the strange things that seem to be occuring around the globe these days. Beautiful blue sky as a backdrop. Murray.
Pleasant composition, simple and attractive!
Early spring indeed, we experience the same in my place as early flowers are popping up when it should be snowy and cold!
Beautiful blue sky, great colours and details in the branch!
A lot of people here cut these ends & put them into alcohol
It is very good for cuts & burises (They say.)
Very tastefully done.
Love the BLUE, sky.
Dear Anton ,

it has lovely blue color.
thanks my good friend
