It's Leaf Day!

Light green leaves, just opened, against gray branches and blue sky
Probably the earliest one on record in Minnesota... the day when the leaves officially stop being buds, and all the branches are yellow-green.

There were dandelions and midseason tulips blooming on April 12. I think that happened about a month later last year.

I love the expression "Leaf Day".
Every year it's a dazzling surprise when the trees suddenly leaf out overnight. The biggest surprise is that Leaf Day arrived in April instead of May this year.

I didn't know there was an official "leaf day." But based on my backyard, today would be it!
