Red Maple Buds
Yesterday we took a trip to my daughter's. She lives about two hours south east of us. There, the red maples are in full bloom, the forsythia and daffodils are blooming too. As I stood in her garden and looked up through the trees, I thought, "Now that is the picture I want to put on the blog." It was a wonderful visit. They always are.
Back home again I look at my closed tight forsythia, daffodil buds and red maple buds and think "Wow this should be an exciting week. The garden is really coming to life." So here is the picture of the red maple buds the way they are here and now. If you have never noticed the tree buds try looking up. The grand opening here should be sometime this week.
