I love early spring when the trees are just starting to bud out. The foliage is still so small that it casts a shade of color to the light coming through the trees. Pinkish-red in the maples, plums, and redbuds; lacy white in the serviceberry (or shadbush trees) and cherrys, and greeny-yellow in the rest of them.
This ethereal mix of color and light doesn't last long, just for a day or two until the trees really flush out and the blossoms drop,
Add an incoming spring storm and you've got yourself a landscape.
Eat your heart out, Thomas Kincade.
