This spring, I observed the emerging leaves.
It's interesting that spring-green leaves
begin as tiny burgundy red buds.
Then they turn a rusty orange.
And the pale rust of orange evolves into a light yellow gold.
And then, warm temperatures and longer light
turn them into the palest of spring green.
And that's where we are today.
Tender green leaves coloring the trees.
A new leaf...the most recent pleasure of spring.
