Is Spring a Little Late this Year?

By Betty Struckhoff

If spring is a little late, I’m not complaining. I’m hoping against hope that it means we’ll be spared some of the wrath of a St. Louis summer. Last Saturday was a perfect day for a walk in the woods to check out what was happening. Here are some photos of shrubs and a small tree showing their spring buds. Pictures were taken in Des Peres, MO.
