Signs of Spring: Buds on the Trees

It’s always fascinating to watch buds on the trees open in spring and transform from tiny buds to looking like flowers to unfurling into leaves.

Our trees have been a little slow this year to awaken to spring, so I’ve been anxiously watching for the buds to start to open. Hope you’re out looking for signs of spring!

  • Thank you so much for the forsythia photos! One of the few things I miss from Kentucky that we don’t have out here in California. 🙂

    • Thanks Amy! I will have to share more pictures of our forsythia. Right now it has yellow flowers and green leaves opening up, so it’s pretty colorful.
