Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Budding of some Selected Bushes in April

This is going to be a research project on the budding development of some of the bushes in our backyard. Every week for four weeks in a row, I will take pictures of the same buds, which I have clearly marked with a red ribbon. Each week when I publish a new set of pictures, I will stack them on top of the displays of the previous weeks to allow the viewer an opportunity to follow the magical development of the budding process we enjoy every spring. Enjoy. P.S. It is not too late to start your own research process in your neck of the woods.

  1. What a great idea, Peter! I’ve seen the plants budding in our yard as well, which is always uplifting. It’s be interesting to see how yours look in next week’s photos.

  2. What a clever idea, Peter. I’m especially interested in watching that lilac. You’d better be careful — once that fragrance starts spreading, I might just sneak over there and pick a bouquet!

      1. By that time, we’ll hope the restrictions are over! I did notice some gardenias blooming here today, and that surprised me a good bit. Their fragrance is almost as nice.
