baby leaves

Go outside and find a tree. Take a moment to admire the tender new baby leaves unfurling. They're teeny tiny versions of the ones that provide shade in the summer and blaze gloriously in the fall. I bet you already knew that leaves started out small. I suppose I did too. But just recently did I really notice the miniature leaves sprouting from our oak. Lovely! Amazing!
