Buds and Bulbs | HDYGG

light bulbs on bare winter apple treeIt’s seriously wintry in my garden this week. Hard to believe it was almost 10am when I took these photos, and it was relatively bright this morning compared to some recent days.

The apple tree is just a gnarly skeleton holding up some forlorn looking party lights.

Not yet, little fella, wait awhile. You must be thinking spring is coming, when I can assure you there are a few more frosty days ahead.

  1. Ah the bulbs look so lonely on there – there really do need some leaves for company now.At least your maple is showing signs of colour – I have a tiny Acer here that looks like I have stuck a bare stick in the ground!

    Thanks for joining in and sharing again – fingers crossed for sunshine soon x

  2. It’s weird isn’t it all this Spring activity when I’m sure we have snow to come! I bet you’re apple tree looks amazing in the Summer 🙂

  3. When the garden looks all barren its hard to believe everything will covered in fresh shoots come spring. I hope your maple isn’t too confused!

  4. I still love lit up lights in a bare tree – it seems to make the trees happier and nicer looking though! Hope your maple holds up – are they resilient?
