Q: Why was the tree excited for spring?
A: He wanted to turn over a new leaf.
Isn’t that the truth! Me too. And up until this morning it was looking like Spring had arrived. Despite the snow that has fallen in London, Ontario again though, I have a feeling that spring is not far off. All the area sugar bushes are tapping their trees, as the sap is flowing. If you take a close look at a tree or two, you’ll notice that buds are there. They are just waiting for a few more warm days so that they can ‘POP’. And suddenly it will be Spring!
In the interim perhaps we should lighten up. A little levity might be just the thing to have us laughing our way into Spring. Just as a reminder, it officially arrives next week! Enjoy the tree humour!

Hope you are having a great March Break! Don’t forget to take in the 2013 World Figure Skating Championships while they are in London this week!
Thanks for the smile. I hope all my trees turn over a new leaf.
It seems that every year, at least one my oak trees just doesn’t come back.
I know one of my little Japanese Maples was damaged by a heavy snow….don’t know if it can recover.
haha, mine too! Sorry to hear about your oak trees. Have you ever had an arborist take a look at them? They might be able to give you some suggestions on how to overwinter them better. Fingers crossed on your maple
Yes, I have.
Ken Lamb is an arborist and I have had to call him out here every Spring. He was able to save one of my biggest oak trees with an antibiotic. He said that there are a lot of unhealthy oak trees around here, because of droughts followed by overly wet seasons. My post “Wisdom of the Yawning Tree” will give you a good idea of the condition of some of my trees. I didn’t know there were bugs in the “yawning” tree, or that the tree was dying….until a pileated woodpecker brought it to my attention by making a huge hole. 🙂
