Two Trees; One Ring

All right...we're finally getting a result here in tree world.  Look how it's changed this week -

The maple is beginning to be very fluffed out. 

The copper beech seems to have a divided leaf trying to emerge.  The process reminds me of a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis. 

The weather has been squally and stormy with one day of monsoon-like rain.  They call it the Pineapple Express and it brings warm temperatures and whole bucket load of rain across the ocean from Hawaii.  But today, the clouds have blown away and the sun is shining.  Maybe March's lion-like entry is over.

Could it be the start of some lamb-ish weather for our pretty rhubarb with its rosy buds and crinkly leaves?   That's a hairy buttercup stalk in the foreground.  They need no spring weather to be a nuisance.

Your rhubarb is farther on than ours! We're just seeing the tiniest of pink peeping through.
I do hope the March is happy to have given that roar, and will be quiet and peaceful now! Oh, and sunny!
