Beside the busy road that I take almost daily, there is a stretch of wood with tall trees and small trees. Those small trees have fascinated me for years and years. They are the kind that cling to their old leaves all throughout winter and never shed them until the new ones come out and "push them off". I had always wanted to be there in time to see this happen. Seems like after many years of planning and missing the moment, I got it last Tuesday. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. (Some leaves WOULD want to fall off at last but CAN'T.... :roll: ) 7. 8. 9. And as the 10th and last photo: all fresh, young, new spring leaves: 10.
