Prompt #2 for week 1 of the Two Takes project is to compare old versus new. These dried up old oak leaves are largely still hanging from the trees in my back yard, waiting for new growth to push them on out. Between two oaks is a Tulip Poplar (the Tennessee state tree, by the way) that is just beginning to sprout tiny little baby leaves. The leaves actually grow quite large and the orangy tulips put on quite a show as well.
It feels sort of weird not participating in the Creative Exchange this week and I'm sad to see this weekly linkup go. But, Lisa's still out there producing great photos and making the rounds around the blogoshpere, so at least we won't be missing her. :)
