Snapshot Week 7: Feb 15-21

Maple florettes

Wooden "blooms" of the Tulip Poplar

Japanese Magnolia

I expect these next weeks (since I am posting this late and already know the future;) will be filled with the stuff of Maples and Japanese Magnolias. Drive down any Arkansas Highway, and you are likely to see a red mist scattered trough the woods. These would be the petal-less blooms of Maples. Beyond that, the Capitol is flashing her yearly big pink. Maybe this year we will make it though the blooming season without attendant snow or ice.
