Red Buds In Spring Light

Weird Bark

Weird Bark. I saw this bark and thought it looked quite unusal. Parts of this small tree have thick pieces of bark while the rest of the tree is pretty much thin. I took this picture because of the lovely curve that the bark makes, creating a sense of movement. April 2011

Budding Japanese Maple Tree

Budding Japanese Maple Tree. I saw these interesting little buds growing and thought they belonged to a flowering tree. Their bud's colors are almost a dark pink to red but instead I have discovered -as they grow a little more each day- that this is a Japanese Maple Tree. A refreshing additon to the garden especially after a long terrible white winter. Wonderful to see the various colors nature displays during Spring. Species name: Acer Palmatum. April 2011
