Trees Are Leafing Out Again

Trees Are Leafing Out Again
Although it's not yet officially spring, the trees are leafing out again. Perhaps it's to respond to all the rain that is refreshing their roots. It seems just last week most trees were still bare, except for the flowering trees. After they shed their blossoms, they started wearing leaves. 


I took a photo of the birch tree in my side yard that was naked just a few days ago. Now it's dressed in green. I actually think it's more interesting without the leaves. I love its delicate frame of branches.

After photographing the birch tree, I turned my attention to the oak across the street. Unlike the photo of the same tree in the top corner, I did not apply any effects to these photos. You will notice how blue the sky is in the photo above as I was looking east. In the photos  below, I was looking north, and the sky was still cloudy gray, yet I took the photos within minutes of each other.

As you can see, it was a gray day, even though the rain was past. I could not fit all of my neighbor's large oak tree into the photo because of where the sun was. That's a lamp post sticking up on the right side.

The photo above shows the delicate leaves contrasting with the sturdy frame of the oak. Below we see the smaller branches at the very top.
