Woodland gems

Posted by Picasa
The trees are just beginning to bud and from a distance you can see that slight change in their colour, from the dark drab browns of winter to the pale greens of early spring. 


  1. Lovely photos Dave, what kind of a tree is the last photo here? Those flowers are really interesting just hanging like they are.

  2. Today was such a nasty day: fog, drizzle, rain, drizzle, rain, temperature hovering around 5°... There's hope! :-)

  3. Am envious to see even green moss! Love the macro - from the new camera?

  4. Rosy.
    They are catkins and appear on Birch, Hazel, Alder or willow trees. Birds feed off them.

    Keep hoping, as Paris gets better summers than we do here. I hope September is fine as I'm cycling to Paris then !!

    Yes the new camera. I'm pleased with it. The new DSLR's are not so heavy as the older SLR model were.

  5. I love moss. Your photo is lovely, one I could look at for hours. There is moss here in the dry, but it is smaller, nowhere near as lush.

    It's great to look at your photos...makes me think of the rainy, moss-covered coast. Your new camera certainly looks as if it is doing the job, and then some!

  6. What lovely signs of spring!
