The Buds are Building for Bursting
We have been seeing more and more signs of spring being right around our corner in the Midwest. So, as we looked closer into the anatomy of the branch, leafs and buds of a tree in late winter, we each took turns dissecting, scale by scale, a few buds from the trees outside.
What was inside? When did these buds form? Would we see signs of spring?
A couple picked Soft Maple buds, a couple picked Peach buds. After some scaffolding, we started entries into our journals.
Of course, that meant magnifying lenses and microscopes.
And, what a beautiful enlightening when one digs a little deeper, delves a little further. There might be something there you didn’t expect to find.
One saw sap globules inside her bud, one found the sprout of a soon-to-be flower.
This is wonder, observation and the essence of science.
What signs of spring are you seeing?
