now in color

| No Comments
After looking at this big gray tree for two months, I'm so thrilled that it is finally starting to have color!

The flower clusters glow almost red in the morning light.


And the sun reflecting off the mossy growth on the bark hints at all the green to come.


The rain reveals deeper hues in the brown buds and pistachio leaves emerging from the twigs.


And the camera lens confirms my suspicion that the purple flowers are turning green.




For more fabulous pictures of trees in early spring bloom, check out this amazing photoblog from a woman following 93 trees for a whole year. Her pictures this month really capture the tiny yet amazing beginnings that make spring so magical.
