THIS SPRING BUD IS FOR YOU! SHARING THE BLOOMING TREES AT KATES CABIN




Hi Everybody!!
A 'Great Awakening' is occurring here in the woods! All winter, my trees appeared as naked skeletons with no leaves or flowers. While we were not looking, the roots of these trees were frolicking and growing deep within the warmth of our Earth. The root network is as deep as the tree is tall and interconnected with surrounding plants. At exactly the right time and perfect conditions, the energy rises out of the roots, up the tree trunks, out to all branches and pops out of the bark as new annual growth!  Some trees pop out flowers first, then leaves. Others pop out the leaves, then flowers.
Featured below in today's photostudy are trees on the Sanctuary Grounds popping out Spring Buds. For my Friends who can not go out, worry not as I am bringing Spring to You! Enjoy!
