Today it is raining but I wanted to see the buds on the sweet gum and went out anyway to capture a few shots of the buds on our new tree across the street. I will try to catch a few photos of them once they open their puff balls of pollen in the coming days.

I have also been watching the maple tree that turns great colors in the fall at Turkey Thicket turn a bright spring yellow-green. I think these below look more willowy than the others maples flowers.
