While the bursting exuberance of blossoming cherries is always a delightful harbinger of spring, I also enjoy watching the more gradual changes of other trees as they get their leaves back. Most of the leaves on this Wedgwood neighborhood tree were so tiny that they were barely visible from a half-block away except as a sheer haze of yellow-green. Although it was still chilly enough that I sketched this from my car, those leaves give me hope that outdoor-sketching season is finally coming.
(Yes, I was illegally parked on the wrong side of the street. 😉)
