Jan wrote in her blip today; "The trees know that this is spring though, so they are continuing to open their mouse ears and soon we will be in full-intense-lime-green world. Just for a week or so, then the green calms down a bit. I love spring!"
That seemed perfect for my blip of some new leaves (mouse-ears) and a central bud that just released more.
Even the twig adds colour to the event.
