Emerging Leaves

Seattle

leaves, emerging from their leaf buds, are surrounded by spent blooms. Interestingly, a flower bud is actually a modified leaf. Some flower buds may be fruit buds as the flower will result in a fruit. Mixed buds contain both the immature leaf structure and flower parts. Leaf buds are often more plump and pointed than flower buds.
