New Buds

Inspected my trees this morning for the first time in a while and discovered new adventitious buds that I was hoping for on a couple of maples.  The trees are being kept in the unheated garage getting light from a window.  They’ll be kept out of freezing danger for a while yet.  The Amur maple normally is one of the earliest to break bud and this could happen in 5 0r 6 weeks.  I’ll have to look at the maples a bit more often from now on so I don’t get caught out with lack of water.
