New Growth from old Limbs

I so dread the heat that comes after the all-too-brief spring, but it is hard not to be moved by the beauty of new life in spring. These old peach trees (we think that's what they are) looked dead, but our landlord hopefully pruned them year before last when we moved in. They put out branches last year and this year there are shy little blossoms popping out to charm us, a beautiful juxtaposition against the gnarled old wood.


  1. Wow, such a poetic description for these photos! The top picture reminds me of popcorn and the lower one reminds me of dew on a spiderweb.

  2. Very cool picture! Such a promise of spring! "See" you when we get back!
