from flowers to leaves in one day

| No Comments
On the very first day of spring, the buds on my tree began to open as if on cue to reveal purple flowers. Today, on Arbor Day, the tree shook off the last of those flowers and transformed itself into a green leafy tree just like the maples that bloomed last week.

Only yesterday, heavy, wilted flowers still hung from all the twigs.


Small leaves had just begun shooting out at the tips.


After a rainstorm yesterday evening, the road and sidewalk were littered with the flowers.


And in the sunshine this morning, the twigs were bare save for stunning open leaves at every tip.


They're so lovely, they're almost more flowery than the flowers ever were.


A good day for a tree.
