It has not gotten warm enough around here for the leaves on the trees to fully fill out. It is till early spring for the higher elevations of the plains. Here is a cottonwood still in early spring stage. The leaves are still translucent and the cotton buds are forming. With some more sun and warmth the seed pods will open and the air will fill with cotton.
With some backlighting and a clear blue azure sky, the young cottonwood leaves set off nicely against the sky.
The weekend is over, a new week begins. The travels of life continues.
Have a great week.
