Tree Watching: My Willow Tree is now Sporting New Leaf Buds
March 28, 2012
New leaf buds have appeared on the thin willow branches
The gray pussy willows are looking scruffy after all of this spring’s wind and rain, but I noticed that the tree’s branches are now sporting new leaf buds along its branches, particularly on the branches that are sprouting from the trunk.
