    1. Yes, it's fun to watch the change, isn't it? Most of this happened after last month's tree following post--in fact, most happened within the span of nine days in May. I wish I'd had time to take a photo each day, but other projects pulled me away.

    1. I know--it's even wilder to see it happen outside the kitchen window. The quick changes with this type of tree are crazy fun to watch in May (here in Wisconsin, anyway).

  3. Trees really rush into spring, no? Nice way to show the leafing out process.

    1. Yes, when they finally do, it happens fast! And now they're providing blessed shade and shelter for all kinds of creatures. Fun to watch!

    1. Yes, it's a magical time, but it all happens so fast. At least we get to enjoy the fully leafed out stage for the summer.

    1. Thanks! One of these springs, I'll take a shot every day from May 1-May 31 and make a flip book or a video. That's when most of the change happens.

    1. Thanks, Jen. I would have liked to have captured more, although toward the end, the changes weren't as perceptible. Time-lapse is fun to watch!

  15. Feel quite moved by this. And struck by how much the light under the tree has darkened.

    1. I was thinking the same thing, Lucy. Add in similar changes to the large Oak trees in my garden and it's easy to see how the light changes drastically from winter to summer. And it shows the shade protection value of great deciduous trees.

  16. If I scroll fast it is amazing to see how dark and green it gets, it must be much cooler under it than in the sun. Interesting effects.

    1. Yes, very different light levels. The sunny winters help us save money on the heating bill, and the shade in the summer saves money on air-conditioning expenses.
