Seeing Trees (and other things)

Nancy Ross Hugo’s book inspired me to look more closely at my trees as they come into bloom.  You don’t think of oaks and maples as flowering trees, but of course they are.  Just look at these oak buds.

They are beautiful against an early spring sky.

This is how they looked on March 23.  And  below is how they looked today, twelve days later.

Look at those elegant fronds and delicate baby leaves!

Meanwhile, Seeing Trees is about looking closely at trees, using commonly found trees as her examples.  The text is engaging, and the photos are astonishing.  Check it out from your local library!  (Fuller report after I’ve finished  it.)
