American Elms

The larger American Elms along the boardwalk are in flower! This is usually a late-Feb, early-Mar event, so right on schedule. As of this morning, you have to look up high to the branches on the tops of the tallest trees to see the emerging flowers. The lower eye-level branches, which are visible as you walk along the boardwalk, are not ready to open yet. I will be keeping a close eye on them. So, do you think that Spring has begun? The Elm trees must know something! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
