It is easy to feel discouraged when it’s in the freakin’ 40’s (that’s like, 4 or 5 to you weird Celcius people). So yeah, I laughed out loud when a friend posted the above as her Facebook status today. But here’s where being a bud and flower pervert aficionado comes in handy. (And yes, I apparently spelled that right. Huh.)
ooooh, yeah, baby, bring it! This is Silver maple (Acer saccharinum). Oh, and this is all the way out in Whitingham, VT, at an elevation at least 1,000’ above us.
And in downtown Brattleboro, similar excitement prevails:
Red maple (Acer rubrum)
