Red Maple


Red Maple
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
The buds have broken dormancy on the trees -- here a red maple. Saucer and star magnolias are just opening their showy blossoms; and driving home, even the oaks are a haze of ochre and burnt sienna. On lawns, wild onions and garlic add a vivid green.

Promises of spring on the muddy earth and gray sky.

So pretty Lin. The spatter is so effective.

I hope you have not been in the storms way this week.

I'm so glad spring is bringing some early joy in your neck of the woods. Here, I am already noticing signs of the leaves on the deciduous trees beginning to turn even though the days are still hot and humid. I'm yearning for Autumn for some respite!
