Things are Springing up…
…but not so much yet in Vermont, at least compared to here in Central North Carolina. The politics may not be great but the weather and the grandkids are both fabulous this week.
Growing children are such miracles, especially when they reach the stage of playing Go Fish or waiting for the tooth fairy!
And the trees are growing too! Budding and blooming with some already shedding seed. Redbud, Wisteria, Sweet Gum and Tulip Poplar, Oaks galore and even my old friend American Beech. How quickly it happens. This is a preview of where we’ll be in Vermont in another six weeks or so.
Sweet Gum about to burst into bloom.
Tulip Poplar also about to explode into bloom!

Kids and trees: I’m so fortunate to live in such a beautiful world.
