Bud Burst

Whilst blossom trees are the blowsy Prima Donnas of the spring garden, there are others whose charms are more discrete.  

The tracery of the bare branches against a clear spring sky, with just the first hint of new growth bursting from full buds is in some ways more beautiful.  It speaks of the promise of the season that is to come.

This Scottish Wych Elm in The Forecourt displays these tiny bursting buds for just one day before the new leaves form.
