Budding Maple

(Toledo, OH) At least I think it's a maple tree. I'll pay more attention in the future.

This is one of my neighbor's trees, which was the first on the block to burst into color. And what color!

In the late afternoon sun, the tree seemed to glow with its irredescent red buds. The effect was even more powerful from behind the tree, looking into the sun, but I would have had to take the picture from his roof.

Chances are he wouldn't be impressed.

I was greeted the other morning by the bud caps of our flowering crab piled up against the garage door.

I don't remember them being this profuse in the past.
