This is a new bud on a tree I found yesterday. I think it also looks like a bug as well!! But for sure it promises that spring is almost here and new life is blooming!! Another sure sign of spring is Pussy Willows!! I love thier soft puffy bodies.
This is a sign of fall past I know but I thought it was so beautiful and delicate I had to add it here. It is a dryed seed pod of some plant, I don't know but I thought it was intricate and golden with its little hidden treasure inside.
