Tentative Growth of Box Alder in Spring

Tentative Growth of Box Alder in Spring – click to view larger

Prompted by The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimism, I chose this picture from last April of delicate new leaves on young Box Alder trees that had been hacked down the previous summer.  It is truly astonishing how fast Box Alder Maple can grow in spite of poor conditions or trauma, and this trait of the Box Alder Maple makes me optimistic about prevailing in my own endeavors.  While the leaves are brand new and very vulnerable, it shows the optimism of Spring for the coming Summer.
