Each spring I am always amazed how quickly the leaves pop out and the hills explode with a brilliant green color in only a matter of days. The first buds appeared on the trees a few days ago and now the leaves are here until mid-September. Its hard to believe the temperature just started to climb above freezing only a month ago and now its greening up, there is continuous twilight all night, and the mosquitos have returned.
These leaves were just buds yesterday--and suddenly today the leaves are out.
The hillside went from brown to a tint of light green in one day--amazing.
