Spring has arrived for our two trees

Our Amercian Mountain Ash starts with tiny tight buds.

Which slowly grow and begin to open ever so slightly.

And grow even more.

Until we see individual leaves.

Since I took this photo, the leaves are triple the size shown here.  The branches with nothing on them are not dead but have the very tiniest bits of green showing.

The Sunburst Thornless Honeylocust is a very late starter.

Once the tree buds up and they all open, it will be very full.

They both have small flowers in late spring which we will miss.  However I know that they will look very majestic when we return.  Both trees have been stopping places for many song birds thus far this spring.  I often pause what I am doing to simply listen to their song.  Such a great addition to our yard.

    I have a Hawthorn that is a late starter too. We will have been home two weeks tomorrow and as it’s been warm and sunny spring is in full swing! Looking forward to my European with vacation with you!?

  3. I do love Spring. The birds are so singing their brains out in the yard every night. The other night it was so loud I could hear it over the tv inside the house with no windows open lol. I love it though. So many baby birds hopping about too

    Business Class might be obvious to most people but I wondered if it was different on different airlines. There are a number of different classes on some other airlines that we have travelled on.

      Most airlines now only have economy or business. I know that a few have economy plus or something similar which means more leg room.
