As winter was waning I was excited to see buds on the maple trees. Wish I had captured them in a photo. Oh, well. A few weeks later there were maple buds all over the ground.
Now as I take my walks there is a new development. In elementary school we called them ‘helicopters” and they often rained down upon us on windy days.

With the red and yellow buds and seeds some trees looked like autumn. Had never noticed it before
We chased them as kids and I cleaned them from gutters as an adult. The former was definitely more fun!
Maybe we can find a grove of maples to walk through?
I remember these maple buds when I was growing up in Massachusetts, where there were lots of maple trees. We too loved the helicopters the buds created. We also liked to split the maple buds in half and wear them on our noses like a mini rhinoceros horn. I can’t remember why we did it, but somehow it was fun.
