From seed to bud.
New growth will soon be all around us. Small buds are been gently coaxed from their winter-proofed cocoons. As the sun warms, and the spring rains wash gently over them, they will burst forth in all their glory.
Here, is a taste of things to come.
Early leaves on a sunny day.
Dogwood trees offer their snow-white blossoms.
Poppy, fuzzy and prickled looking, will peel back to let loose frilled and silky petals.
I just love this time of change.
