Hello! Below is the second of two galleries of Japanese Maple leaves in my garden, as the tree comes to life to signal the coming spring. The previous gallery — see Japanese Maple Anticipating Spring (1 of 2) — was taken while the leaves were still wet from recent rains but for these photos I waited another day until the tree had dried out. That allowed me to get finer visual detail out of the berries, which should be apparent if you view any of the images full size.
Thanks for taking a look!
Thank you very much, Sheree!! 🙂
It’s a moment of great hope when you see new leaves starting to open! 🙂
It is, I agree! It’s in the 60s here today with a few warm days in the forecast … so hopeful little things are starting to pop up everywhere! 🙂
How I love those budding branches!
Me too! Thanks!
Dale, no budding branches here, but it feels and smells like spring. Early for Maine!
