Aspen Optimism!

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!

~L.H. Bailey

Well, considering it was around the 20th of April last year before any of our trees showed any springtime enthusiasm, it looks like there are a few Trembling Aspens (Populus tremuloides) wanting a head start!  I say bring on the green!
