The leaf buds have opened and the new leaves are vibrant in the spring sunshine. Even on a dull day when these photographs were taken, the colour is glorious. The effect is perhaps enhanced by the slight concertina texture of the recently unfurled leaves.
Looking up through the branches, the new leaves reminded me of a cloud of butterflies.
The fresh green of the springtime oak is a beautiful contrast to the copper beech.
