352/365 Something seasonal: budding trees

Being surrounded by big trees can be a wonderful thing.

You get to see lots of budding leaves in the spring. Lots of changing colors in the fall. You're shaded from the hottest rays of the sun in the summer, meaning the energy bill is much easier to swallow.

But then there are the downsides. Leaves -- and seeds -- in the gutters. Risky limbs hanging over the roof. And growing roots that extend under the house over time and make their way into the pipes.

Sound like I'm speaking from experience?

At the moment, it's a great thing. These budding trees are signaling the arrival of spring.

I'll worry about the other things later.
