We had a nice warm week, but it has been pretty dry. After a night of rain, everything popped, nothing gradual here. Nice to see spring finally arrive, even with a good cold snap following. I have to take photos quick--a yearly event. Spring maples are the best. Triflorum buds are just great, and for only a couple of days. But then the color arrives elsewhere. I like fall color, but spring maples are just great, another week or so and we'll be in the midst of it.
