Saturday Photo: Sun and Spring Trees

The first week in May sees an enormous change in the landscape here: the trees leaf out. The first tiny leaflets may appear earlier--and did this year when we had a few days of very warm weather. But as long as we've lived here, I've never seen full-blown leaves cover the trees before May 3.

This morning is gorgeously clear and a little cool. A grand day for a Jane's Walk! And a good day to watch the leaves appear.

As we used to sing at summer camp:

To ope their trunks the trees are never seen.
How then do they put on their robes of green?
They leave them out.
They leave them out.
