Oh! Look at those lovely tender buds! So beautiful and welcome!
Don't you just love the way trees just seem to speak to us! Love the photo Barbara.
Sheri -- If you blow up the photo one can see the multitude of buds seeming impressionist. Thanks for the comment. -- barbara
Mama-Bug -- I do love trees and they do speak to me and others if one just listens. Your nature photos are wonderful -- barbara
BEautiful shot of the green and red colors of spring. Is isn't only about those big flowers or the colorful leaves in the fall. It takes a diligent observer to truly see the spring bloom.
So very beautiful, Barbara. The colours are amazing.
wonderful picture. so many colors within that adds to the beauty :)
No evidence of the ice storm of 2009 is what I enjoy most about this photo. Still remember the sound of branches cracking, then ice crashing on the ground. Every 10-15 minutes the cracking, popping and crashing went on for almost 48 hours.Amazing to see how the trees adapted to the damage. Every branch left connected by even a trace still bloomed the following spring. Thanks for the reminder that one day again here the evidence of the ice storm will be gone.
Such lovely subtle colors! Mother Nature is a masterful painter.
Gorgeous! I can't wait until the trees here in Ohio burst into their Spring time glory!
Sigh ... we don't get those reds among the greens here. Lovely.
Dianne -- I believe that spring bloom is one part of the circle of life. All seasons are connected to each other and to all of life -- it's surely a rhythmic balance. Thanks for the comment -- barbara
Kay -- You must be close to a "bursting" season as we in Kentucky are just south of you. Thanks for the comment -- barbara
Vicki -- Thanks for the comment -- like you state -- mother nature is a masterful painter. -- barbara
Grampy -- Mother Nature is one tough cookie. It takes a lot of roughness to make her non-productive. We are fortunate to have such a mother that resumes her giving ways even after a tortuous ice storm. Thanks -- barbara
lines and shadows -- Thanks for the comment -- Your artistic eye sees the multiple colors of the different blooms in the photo. Each tree species has such a variety of color influenced by light and shadows. -- barbara
Carole Ann- Glad you stopped by to leave a comment. I appreciate your words. I agree it is amazing. -- barbara
June -- I'm sure you get a beautiful palette of colors in your area. A bit different than ours but surely as lovely. Thanks for the comment -- barbara
You can just see the hints of color about to burst forth.
I see a glorious forest tapestry of straight stitches and french knots! Inspiration!!!
Witch of Stitches -- A very nice way to view it. I can see the same when I look at them through your eyes. Thanks for the comment -- barbara
Farmchick -- I imagine your farm is full of the same color hues from your trees as you live here in Kentucky. The state is sure beautiful right now! -- Thanks -- barbara
Beautiful. Just like a tapestry!
Isn't that beautiful? So delicate, with such soft hues. I agree with Tess that it looks like a tapestry! It'll be a while yet before we see trees starting to bud out around here, so thanks for that vision of spring. I agree with you about the seasons, and I love them all! :-)I've missed visiting your blog in recent weeks. Maybe one day I'll have enough time to catch up on the posts I've been missing out on!
Tess -- thanks for the comment -- early spring buds can be very colorful and mystical -- barbara
Laloofah -- It is amazing how much time is gobbled up in the spring with cleaning, yard work, gardens, and taxes. Perhaps by summer we can sit under the shade of some trees with our favorite drink. -- barbara
