Finally, trees are beginning to look feathery and colorful. I'll share a few. First is the lovely American Beech, Fagus grandifolia. These are unfurling leaves.
Not sure about feathery? How about globular? This is the Sassafras Sassafras albidum, a tree that really needs an entry all its own... one of these days.
Here's the lowly boxelder in flower. It's a maple, Acer negundo, even though the leaves don't look maple-like.
Sorry, nothing creative, just some botany today. But it makes me happy!
