One of the things I like a lot about spring (and even though it's June, it still seems like late spring here in terms of leafing out of the trees), is the great variety in tones of green and textures. This picture is taken from my yard, looking toward the pines on the west.
In the foreground are two autumn olive bushes. Truth be told, these are serious invasive trees that are almost impossible to get rid of. In this picture they are in full bloom. The scent is heavy, sweet and cloying. It's almost oppressive. Behind that is another male mulberry tree, still without full leaves. In the background are the dark white pines, with one bright green boxelder in their midst.
