Four Seasons Journey Through Our Yard – Part II

Two Weeks Later – What a Difference!

FrontNot too much change is noticeable here except for the greening of the little bush on the left. The tulips in front of the house are gradually replacing the daffodils.

Side ViewOn the wild hazelnut and maple trees the tender light-green foliage – two weeks ago barely visible – is becoming dense and is preparing to provide shade for the summer.

StudioOnly sharp eyes will detect the rich colors of the tulips. But the plum tree, which produces the biggest, roundest, and juiciest fruits in the fall, clearly marks  the difference  of two weeks with its blossoms.

    What a lovely seasonal diary in photos! I love this…some subtle, others not so subtle changes. I think you and Gertrud must live in Paradise. This is stunningly beautiful. Mother Nature awakens…but watch out for Jack Frost! Here has been round here also, this last week. Regards.
