This is the same branch of the tree in all the photos.
I've been documenting the blossoming of the maple tree in our yard for the past 3 weeks from bud to bloom to leaves.
We had 13 days of sunshine and warmth to bring the trees to bud really fast. The past few days have been rainy and cooler which has greened things and grown things even more.
And here is where the lacy green tassels comes in....
Aren't they beautiful?
I took the last 3 photos on Friday just as the dark clouds
were rolling in.
The sun is shining this morning and the wind is blowing but, it's much cooler than it was the past 2 weeks.
We went from late winter to summer and now back to spring!
Everything is so green and the trees are filling out so fast. The wild or pin cherries are in bloom and I'm sure the apple trees will be starting soon. I hope they don't get frost bitten!
The hummingbirds are back as I saw two at my friend's feeders on Saturday. I hung my feeders out yesterday and am watching for any movement at them. Nothing yet. :)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed ours very much and our son and his girl took us and her parents out for dinner last night. We also got to 'visit' our daughter and family via Skype.
I am so blessed!
Have a great day!
