All of you fellow leaf watchers might be interested to know that in The Netherlands the maples are already showing off their lush attributes. Check out this link http://art-is-jokken.blogspot.com and you will find evidence of such a maple. You will also find photos of an adorable sheep, great art, and a wonderful outlook on life.
April 20, AM
I can really see them now. The baby leaves are unfurling. I’m still waiting for the moment that the leaves steal center stage from the blossoms.
This spring I’m going to catch it. The moment the first tree leaves début;small, still curled, a blur of sensational spring green. In the past, I’ve meant to take note of exactly when it happens, but I become distracted, and I ultimately forget. The leaves open and I’ve missed it. This year I’m concentrating on the huge maple in my yard. This is how the potential leaves look today, Tuesday afternoon, April 19.
I’ll keep you posted.
these are blossoms , the leaves will arrive soon!! ( in Holland are maples in the same stage!!)At least the one near by my house
