Week 2 of Bud Development Study
As one can clearly see, there has not been much change during the past week. The main reason for this slow development is that the night temperatures were still dipping below the freezing point and most days were sunny but very cool. It seems to me that nature does not follow the human calendar, but rather takes clues from her environment, such as temperatures, length of the day time, perhaps even the angle of the sun. I am looking forward to some significant progress next week.

I hope you all had an enjoyable and worry-free Easter Weekend.
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.
