On a tree,
Wrapped in tiny, little leaves...
It weathers winter's,
Ice and snow,
Waiting for its chance to grow…
When’s that day,
When Spring has sprung,
With springtime sun!
What is a bud?
A leaf bud is a type of bud that will eventually grow into a new leaf.
In deciduous trees, buds are formed in fall and remain dormant throughout the winter. In spring, these buds will develop into the plant's new leaves.
