Signs of Spring: Alder Catkins

Pin It
Looking to the sky yesterday, I noticed that the alder trees have got catkins on them. Then I began to notice other signs that spring is on its way. Tiny iris blooms, blueberry and huckleberry blossoms, hyacinth popping up, swelling dogwood buds. And yesterday I saw a hummer gathering the Japanese anemone seed fluff.
