December Twenty Eighth

Such a curious winter so far, with no snow.

The red and orange balls on the leaf I found are called 'leaf galls' and can be caused by insects, fungi, or other factors.

Also spotted a maple tree exploding with sap.

Now a new year begins...a year which will be full of natural beauty and wonder. I hope you will join me for the journey through the seasons.
