What's Leafing Out

New Sweetgum leaves unfurling in Spring Brooklyn

The Sweetgum around the corner. I did manage to catch it with the leaves just opening. I wonder how many springs in the rest of my life I can manage to do that. It happens every year, but I bet I'll probably miss it more times than not, so I'm happy I remembered to take the alternate route home from work and look for it this evening. And below what I thought was the Red Maple from the community garden down at Floyd Bennett, although at this point, the leaves seem finely dissected and look more like a Silver Maple. Hhhm.
