    This change in the season is beautifully captured in these photographs, Eliza.

  5. Darlene says:

    I thought the only place you could find chokecherry bushes was in the Canadian Prairies. Makes me think of home.

  7. I looked out at a bed last week after a rain, and I swear the iris shot up 2″. I love spring!

  8. Alice says:

    Beautiful, how the beech leaf unfolds from a leaf bud. All little miracles. Nice captures.

  9. Wonderful signs of Spring, Eliza.

  10. LightWriters says:

    Yay !! 💖🙌🏼🤗

  11. Lovely buds. It is always fun to see them coming out at this time of the year…(Suzanne)

    I would have thought your beech leaves were elm; they certainly resemble the Chinese elm that was in the yard of my childhood home. Now I know that one of our native orchids prefers living in the company of beech trees. It doesn’t bloom until much later in the year, but I know where there’s a spot that they might emerge.

    Such heartwarming colours. 💚🌿

  14. I really like that fresh spring green. The beech leaf shot is beautiful!

  15. All pretty, but that beech leaf’s detail and your composition is amazing!!

  16. Dale says:

    I love that we both went with signs of spring. It’s so funny – I almost went with maple, too!
    Lovely shots, Eliza.

  17. Spring has surly sprung one day snow and cold to everything leafing out! Hummers and catbirds are close by but no orioles yet.

  18. Pepper says:

    Looks a lot like here. Beautiful! 😊

  19. Debbie says:

    “Unfolding.” YES, yes indeed — very descriptive!

  20. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Oh spring is coming

  21. Widdershins says:

    We haven’t seen any visible signs of Spring here yet, but it’s coming … you can feel it in the air. 🙂

  22. Tina says:

    That set of beech leaves looks like they wear a jaunty hat!

  23. pbmgarden says:

    You have such a keen eye Eliza. I’m always intrigued by your photos. The beech photo is inspired.

  24. Beautiful capture of the beech leaves!🙂

  25. Kris P says:

    Those are interesting flowers on the maple. I only recently noticed flowers on one of my Japanese maples but they’re not nearly as flashy. I love the beech tree leaves!

  26. Rebecca says:

    A perfect title to go with your beautiful photos.

  27. Cathy says:

    I esepcially love the photo of the Beech. You have overtaken us already… our beech leaves are not that big yet and the maple is only just unfurling….

  28. It’s good you could identify the kind of tree each little bundle of new growth belongs to.

  29. Maria says:

    A most gorgeous unfolding indeed! Spring is such a marvellous time. So full of life and new beginnings.

  30. Lovely leaves 🙂

  31. Hooray … here they come. I get excited when our aspens leaf out … sometime in May!

  32. Unfolding is a great description of early spring. And great images.

  33. Adele Brand says:

    The magic of living in temperate zones is getting to witness moments like this. 🙂
