Each day there’s a little more sky visible through the trees in my local park. How long until all the leaves are gone?

  1. I know I say this all the time, but I am always tickled by the fact that our seasons are moving in opposite directions, you from warm to cold (or cool, I suppose), me from cold to warm (and hot eventually). Our trees are filling in with green after a long winter of bare branches.

    • Lovely. I know you must be enjoying all the new growth and warmer weather. It’s still ridiculously warm here β€” my poor fig tree is sending up new buds everywhere and the herb garden has gone mental. Guess we really needed the rain!!
