I love Spring!

I am again totally in love with catkins this year.
In fact I think this year my love is even deeper!!!!!
Every catkin producing tree, has a slight variation on the theme, and like any male seed,there… is an absolute abundance of them, all trying to be the one to make it into the beautiful soft folds of the females and make seeds.
Included in this one are the wonderful unfurling spirals of the Harts tongue fern, the scrumptious little flower heads from the Cow Parsley that look so much like green cauliflowers, Holly berries, Oak Apples, two types of Willow catkins and Hornbeam catkins.
