The nor-easters of March brought down lots of branches, some quite big, in our yard, and all over town. You see them in lying everywhere. The tree-companies are coming through with chainsaws and chippers and making a fortune cleaning up. Of course, the big maple limb that fell in our back yard did bring some maple flower buds down to eye-level where I could get this shot. I always look for the maple flowers in the Maine spring. The buds have been on the trees since a warm snap in late January, but they can wait patiently for the true warm days of early spring to open. They will open before the leaves even begin to bud.
