Busting out!

Spring is busting out all over here in Wisconsin. It is amazing to me all the different ways that the green pops out from the trees.

My favorite is the Tamarak (American Larch) in the upper right.It is a beautiful 'evergreen' that turns bright yellow orange in fall and drops the needles, but then, in the spring, is the greenest of green as it sends out these feather soft "needles" and new cones.

I should not like this as much as I do, because it is also amazing how many different pollens these trees can produce - and how miserable they can make many of us. But, they are beautiful and Spring is so welcome.
