Spectacular Growth

It's been unseasonably warm the past few days and you can watch things grow in front of your eyes. When we walked Zoe the other night, the Horse Chestnut [Aesculus hippocastanum] had big fat buds and by morning they were starting to open. By afternoon they had opened and the flowers were forming. Truly wondrous.

Early morning light on the just opening leaves

The bud beginning to open

And the flowers beginning to form

  1. What lovely photos - especially the light coming through the fledgeling leaves.

    I'm watching just the same miracle in our garden in the UK. Every year it seems amazing but after the long grey cold of this winter, it seems more concentrated and dramatic this time.

    1. Thanks so much Kari, don't you just love spring! I would love a slightly shorter winter and give spring another month.
