Friday Flowers: Early Spring Tree Blossoms
Red Maple Tree
March is acting like the fickle month that it really is. Temperatures have plunged and we have bitter, below freezing temperatures today. But the sun is shining and the skies are clear.

Red Maple trees are blooming and add subtle colour above the brown landscape. It will be a month before any other tree flowers around here and these maples will not have leaves before the end of April.
When the Red Maple blooms it is time for maple syrup festivals, skunk cabbage flowers, Great Blue Herons and Bluebirds. And I will spend time on the weekend looking for all of them.
