3.3.07 CATKIN BLOOM
Suddenly the catkins on the small brushy colonies of birch put on growth. Going from less than an inch long to two or more inches. For several days these "male" flowers will give off pollen some of which will find its way to the "female" birch flowers.
Inspiring to suddenly see real vegetative growth on trees at this tail end of winter.
