Greening Up

Spring is still a few days away, but it is already greening up. Of course, it is the rainy season here and has been for quite some time.

However, since it is St. Patrick’s Day and I am thinking about green, this is where my mind wandered tonight.
Leaves, Spring, New Leaves, Greening up

This weekend I was doing Yard Work and decided that I needed to take pictures of all the green that is starting to appear.

I love the look of new leaves appearing on a tree. This is on a small tree that I have in my backyard so it was easy to take a picture of the top of the tree.

By the end of the year, this branch will probably be gone from the tree. As the tree grows skyward I will be cutting off the lower branches. For now though it needs as many branches as possible for root development.

You can see a picture of it from November if you visit my post Yard Work III. At that time the grass was also very green, but the trees did not have any leaves.

Rose Bushes, Spring Roses, Greening Up, FloribundaHere is my nice yellow floribunda rose. You can see one bloom peeking through the leaves and there are many more that are ready to open. There is also another rose bush just beside this one, but it is pretty much overshadowed. It is a pink floribunda. Not my favorite rose, but still very pretty.

Is it greening up where you are?

Are you excited for spring later this week?
