Oak Leaf

Oak Leaf, originally uploaded by mhall209.

I thought about calling this "Left Overs". I have been out looking for the first signs of spring- flower buds, birds, signs of sunshine, and what not. We have some daffodile buds, they should bloom in the next day or so. But this left over oak leaf caught my eye, and my lens. At first it looks like mid winter. Only one leaf left, everything else had long been dropped. But if you look closely you will see those leaf buds are growing! they will leaf out soon, and that one old leaf will be out numbered with lots of new green growth! A sign of spring on its way!
