The brushes of autumn are colouring more and more leaves now. Our big birch tree in the yard has nice yellow strokes amidst the green. Last glory before the colourless period sets in.

Small birch leaves are still lime green, but quickly growing. It’s the ‘mouse ear’ phenomenon, as this stage of budding leaves in spring is called in Finnish.

#132 “mouse ears”

132/365 “mouse ears”, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

It was +20 degrees in the sunshine today, and the birch tree leaves are bursting right in front of our eyes. In Finnish we call these tiny new leaves “mouse ears”.

All the different shades of green make the landscape very interesting before it all turns into the more uniform dark green of the summer. What a beautiful time of rebirth!
