Springtime in my backyard

spring, originally uploaded by e14studio.

Wonder of wonders! Just a week ago the fig tree was nothing but sticks. Every year at precisely this time, the green leaves start to poke out from the tips of the branches. One day no buds, next day green shoots! Amazing!

Every day I notice the leaves popping out and dotting my backyard with green specs of color. In a very short time those leaves will be the size of my hand or bigger. Last year I saved the leaves in progressive sizes and pressed them. They made interesting collage elements.

Hope you enjoy this inspiration of spring because I literally stepped in dog poop to take this shot! Ya take the good with the bad....

Yay for Spring!
Our tree in the front yard and one in the backyard started blooming with pretty white flowers. We didn't even know they bloomed because we moved in last July, so it was a nice surprise!
