of Bark & Limbs in Winter
Autumn catkins grow longer & longer
throughout the winter on the Turkish Hazel,
the bark of which is corky & deeply scored.
This portrait shows the catkins in November.
The male catkins continue to lengthen until they have
become long chains, yellowish from pollen.
In this late February portrait you can also see (out of focus)
the tiny pink female flowers that once pollinated
will slowly mature into nuts encased in spiky bracts.
