Pecan trees budding out

OK - it's official. Spring truly is here - the pecan trees are budding.

Pecans are the prudent sisters of the tree family. They don't want to take any chances in being trapped by a frost. If they are leafing out, they are pretty confident that no more cold (not cool - cold) snaps are coming.

The pecan orchard across the highway from us is coming to life and our two old pecans are following suit, as this photo shows.

Now I'm hungry for pecan pies!
