I’ve found it quite fascinating to watch just how quickly our fir & spruce trees have grown in just one month. The buds didn’t break until about mid May and I took a few photos one month later. In the photo of the Blue Spruce, you can really see just how blue the tree is. In the close up, you can get a sense of the growth by the contrast of the darker branch of last year’s growth to the fresh light blue new growth. The small trees are just a couple of newly planted Balsam Firs that have grown a lot since being planted at the beginning of May.
