Birch Catkins (3)
Comments(10) # Birch Catkins (3) london e10

We saw some male birch catkins from this same tree a couple of months ago before they were fully developed. This time we can also see some smaller female catkins. And thus we celebrate LDNP's first Blogday, thanks to all who've visited whether you've commented or not and thanks to all who've linked here. Though the blog was primarily my own challenge it has been a pleasure to see so many coming here day after day or even just dipping in now and again and a delight to receive so many kind words. The weather here has once again taken a turn for the worse so I suspect it will still be some time before we get to either of my favourite species, the Dragonflies and Butterflies. But I suppose we must take that as one of the joys of a blog like this, one really doesn't know what's going to come next. I've blown out the candle so now everyone is invited to enjoy a slice or two of the virtual birthday cake. Mine is of course a very rich dark chocolate one but you can choose whatever flavour you like. Canon EOS 5D
