ABC Wednesday - "G"

"G" Is for New Growth
(all photos may be enlarged by clicking on them)

New growth on the moss at the base of a tree in my back yard.



New growth on the rose bush




New growth on the Peach Tree



New growth on the sweet Pussy Willow

With all this new growth, can Spring be far behind?

How lovely and hopeful. Your photos are superb - the pussy willow reminds me of a small granddaughter who called them wallypusses and would stand for a long time rubbing one against her cheek. Fond memories. Thanks for sharing the glorious photos!

Hi there Pat. Thank you so much for visiting with me earlier today. I enjoyed reading your comments.

So you are a stamper? Me too. I love to make cards and think up new designs.

The buds on your peach tree are simply beautiful. Isn't it invigorating to have spring in the air?
