Winter flowers

I went for a walk round Filnore Woods, determined to show you all that even in winter there are flowers to be found.  Disappointingly the only floral items I discovered were hazel catkins.

  Even these are still closed up but later in January they will stretch out to look like THISSSSS.


Searching around you may find other trees with nascent catkins such as alder, birch, and even oak and walnut, though these latter two are less conspicuous as yet.
