That's right! we have leaves on our trees around here now. That means we're special. Or it could mean that it really is spring now. The horrible heat wave we're having could be another clue to that. Luckily, the heat wave is just now ending.
These leaves made it through pretty well though. I was able to get some much better pictures too, once the camera had something to actually focus on. I probably could have zoomed in a bit closer, but I'm pretty satisfied with what I have here.
Nothing. No movement at all. They just don't seem very afraid of me. Oh sure, the branches rocked back and forth in the wind just a little bit. But that's not what I would call a reaction. Maybe I'm just losing my touch.
Now that I think of it, I don't really remember any trees or plants shaking their branches in panic and running around in fear. Ever. So maybe I haven't lost my touch at all. Honestly, I didn't even know I had a touch until now. I guess we learn something new every day.
I haven't been out to take a close look at these leaves for a few days now. Maybe they look different. Maybe the red part has already turned green. Maybe some of the shine has been lost already. I'm sure there are some differences, especially after a day and a half of rain.
So it's back out to get more pictures for me, not just leaves. So I'll be back next time with something new and exciting. Talk to you later.
