Red Huckleberry Shrub Awakening

I love watching plants change from winter twigs to beautiful shrubs. One day last week this red huckleberry branch caught my eye.

March 29

Within a day’s time the branch had changed significantly.

March 30

And four days later this is what it looked like:

This is a photo of the red huckleberry shrub taken on March 30.

And on April 5 it looked like this:

The exquisite intricacy of Nature is amazing.

[Note: I’ve been getting frustrated because I haven’t been able to get clear close up photos. I discovered it was because the iPhone camera was focusing on the background. When I hold my hand behind the item I want to photograph the item becomes clear immediately. So expect to see my hand a lot!]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

This is the view from the upper deck of my house. The magnolia tree and the blue spruce are in my yard. Beyond them is the Greenbelt which is full trees and plants awakening.

I love watching ferns in their awakening process. Each of the photos below  is of a different fern. Most of them are in the Greenbelt.

By June, many of them will look like this.
