These are almond tree’s blossoms which are very common during this specific time of season in Greece and Mediterranean region.
The almond (Prunus amygdalus), is a species of tree native to the Middle East and South Asia. "Almond" is also the name of the edible and widely cultivated seed of this tree.
It is a medium sized deciduous tree (as 20 meters height). Its leaves are thin, green open. It's not age old like Olive and fig tree. Because it is the first fruitful tree that blooms, is considered the symbol of the resurrection. The blossoms, come late winter, before the appearance of the leaves. Because it can flourish even in late January to early February, is too often likely to see blooming while it snows.

This is lovely - beautiful focus on the pollen bearing anthers and a dreamlike blur around the edges.

I'm not keen on the background you've chosen to set your image off - I think plain black or a very deep grey would make it stand out better.
