Different day, different journal, same tree.
I was delighted today to see the changes since my last visit to the tree. Again, I didn't have a great amount of time, but enough to concentrate on one bud and notice the various shades of green...wish I could capture them all accurately. Pale green, yellow green, see-through-green, green green, bright green, dull green, gray green, brown green.
I think pink is about to dominate the scene. Just give her time.
