If you look up close…

These aren’t what you normally think of when you think of spring flowers, but, if you look very close, you can see that these alder catkins are clusters of little dark pink flowers.

From a distance the alders have a pink/orange patina due to the color of the catkins (they are the deciduous trees with the light trunks).

For Cee’s Flower of the Day and Denzil Nature Photo Challenge: Pink.
