Everything is popping around here –

the buds on the trees,

blossoming flowers,

even the grass

as it seemingly grows greener everyday.

Tonight, I snapped this picture of

some baby leaves that just emerged

on a tree in my back yard.

I love to study the details

of some of the planet’s tiniest gifts,

like the intricate veins

on these just-born beauties.

Looking at the little things

makes you realize how big they really are.
