A lovely clear night after a warm sunny day.
In a little book called Field and Fen, which is a collection of articles from The Eastern Daily Press, a Norfolk newspaper, I found this description of how leaves unfold.

The warm weather last weekend has opened up many leaves, green is spreading over the countryside.
Still tightly closed are the fig leaves on my small tree and the Walnut in a garden down near the road.

But other leaves are opening (my camera has decided not to focus on close up so these pictures are awful - or it might be me not keeping still enough-)
