Today I Saw

Today I saw more of a Sweetgum tree in emergence.

The contrast between the silky soft – and I mean silky rabbit foot soft – emergence and the gnarly prickly ball it will, I assume, become, is striking. I’ve never seen a sweetgum tree up close before now so I am looking forward to seeing how this all develops.
