Two Trees; One Ring

Things are definitely heating up out on the rrees..  And it's not just because the sun is shining.  look...


The maple tree buds are fatter and fluffier.  The branches are greener now but still have the red tone.


The copper beech has added another 1/4 inch to the baby leaf growth.  I love the shadow it sends over the  branch.
 
The sun is a glorious sight today.  The air is warmer even though there was frost last night.  It has been more or less rainy all week.  Plumping up those tree rings.

Such beautiful colors, and the promise of new growth - natures signs of hope.

Love that first photo, the soft edges of buds that will be leaves.
It's exciting to follow the growth here Stephanie, a lovely reminder that Spring has sprung! (even though the weather here is in disbelief...too cold altogether for Feb mid-term!).

I've been checking the buds on my two lilac bushes. Praying for some flowers this year!
