I’ve really enjoyed noticing flowering trees this spring, hungry for signs that the Narnian winter was on its way out. Many wind-pollinated trees put out tiny flowers before, or alongside, their leaves, as leaves can get in the way of this process. Sitting on the top deck of the bus is great for noticing them high in the canopy. They’re easy to miss, and given the pace of growth this Spring, will be gone before you know it. A simple way to connect with nature in the city.
