Nature can be so sneaky

Every spring, I’m amazed at the speed of how little buds burst into leaves. Some trees produce delicate flowers and then blow away.

So many mysteries and questions with nature’s cycles. One morning the branches are bare; next morning little buds miraculously appear.

I’m an eager botany student, but the learning is slow going. But it’s fun to learn through observation and admiration of nature doing its thing faithfully every season.


Do these pink flower clusters come before the leaves?


“Never yet was a springtime, when the buds forgot to bloom.”
