The bud (above)
opened to reveal this (below).
Such interesting flora.
Only time will tell what exactly we are photographing.
Meanwhile, we (Aidan, Luke, Asher and I) have enjoyed our lovely jaunts each day after school/Asher's nap to search for new growth; and to apply the "rule of thirds" and "angles" that Aidan and I have been discussing.
I strap on Asher, apply bug spray, and off we go :)
