The buds of spring

On a recent walk I spied quite a number of trees in this condition. I don't know if these holes were made by animal or man?

But this cut looks pretty man-like to me.

At last a couple of buds. I am processing something very difficult for me, thus have been absent from blog-land for a bit. I will try to get around to your postings soon.

hmmm, I wonder if that's the work of beavers?

My thoughts have been with you Suki. I wish I could wave a magic wand! Let me know if I can help from here.

I am also starting to see buds on the branches though it is still cold and windy here- waiting for spring and renewal- and best wishes for you too.

what did anais nin say about a bud opening up versus staying closed, suki? i'm thinking a difficult frost may hasten the most beautiful flowering.....

love

Mim said...

ooh - that KJ - she's so deep! but I agree, the best flowers come after a frost - they are the strongest

Pileated woodpeckers make those elongated holes in tress. There must be close by. Big Hugs.

Finally spring buds!!!!
Have no idea who made those holes I think animals.
Hold on can't be long before spring is really there as well!

hugs!

I am thinking of you, Suki. Please let us know when we can help. You can email me privately if you want to.

Lisa is right...the oblong holes are made by Pileated Woodpeckers. The tree may have snapped in high winds because it was already hollow in the core.
