May, Invitation to Fresh Greenery
In May, the newly budded leaves unfurl in the warm sunshine of early summer. The leaves are still a pale yellow-green color, but if you look up from the shade of the trees, you will see a clear, bright green light. The vividness of the sprouting greenery invites you to enjoy the charm of fresh greenery that can only be seen at this time of the year.
April, Time of Budding
One of the highlights of this season is the sight of trees that are budding for the first time. The hard buds of winter become plump and round, and the young leaves of maple and maple trees begin to sprout with a reddish tinge. After the long, frozen winter, this is the season when the trees announce the beginning of the year, and this is the only time you can see them budding.
