Precious Growth


Along the sidewalk of the park that I walk the dog in, there are quite a few Alder trees. Guess that’s why it’s called Aldergrove. Here’s one that is just starting to send out it’s leaves. Lovely Spring signs.  The round things are mature female Catkins.A

  1. Excellent, Robin! We don’t see much alder around here, which is why I never knew they had catkins or cones.

    • D, thank you! They actually have two styles of catkins, the cone type are the mature female and the male is the long style.
