Today I fell in love with alder trees. It’s not a species I’ve really looked at much before, partly because I haven’t seen many close up. Driving home from from work today I stopped to take my coat off because I was too warm and I noticed the trees right beside me. I’m glad I did 😍. I shall watch their catkins, flowers and leaves open during the spring. When I don’t have the car (only had it this week because Toad has been ill with a virus), I can walk along to this spot before catching the bus.
The far one in the first pic is a not an alder.
