Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

The Slow but Steady Budding Process – Week 4

With daytime temperatures rarely going above 10 degrees C and continuing chilly nights, it is not surprising that my studies show an unusually slow progress in the development of the four plants: rose, lilac, magnolia and azalea . I am waiting for the magnolia flower to show its beauty before ending my studies. So we will go for another week or two. Our cherry tree is still holding back and is reluctant to display her bridal dress, which normally would be on display in the middle of April.  As a bonus photo, I will publish a photo of our lake and the local mountain with tons of snow on it still visible. Enjoy.

  2. It seems like buds take a little longer to open up that far north, Peter. This is a great series of photos giving us a realistic timetable how nature operates in the Arrow Lake area. Thanks for keeping with it! Des

  3. Those buds are taking their time to develop into their destination of getting into full blooming. Loved the last image of the wooden piece, it’s up to many interpretations what ever comes to our mind, pretty interesting image.
