"A-budding"

A very warm winter day. Unfortunately I was confined to being indoors for the day and limited to just a few minutes in the backyard looking at a several kinds of buds, just as Thoreau did on this date, the last day in January, 1854:

"In the winter, when there are no flowers and leaves are rare, even large buds are interesting and somewhat exciting. I go a-budding like a partridge. I am always attracted at this season by the buds of the swamp-pink, the poplars, and the sweet-gale."
– Henry David Thoreau, from The Journal of Henry D. Thoreau
