How Quickly Things Change

Last week I wrote about, and posted pictures from, our weeping cherry tree. The blooms are nearly gone now. The tree is fine, but that colorful stage is so brief.

Other trees and bushes have taken its place.

I’ll post photos from two right now. I know the yellow one is forsythia. As for the other… no clue. I do know they’re both really pretty.

This is part of what makes springtime in Connecticut so amazing. Though short lived, the colors really stand out.

Meanwhile, while all of this is going on leaves on deciduous trees, like our oak trees, begin to unfurl (bottom photo). The leaves seem already full grown, so the transition from bare tree to full leaf coverage is very quick.
