Flowers in the wood walk.

Two very different flowers are showing in the wood walk this week.

The wild cherry is in full flower. Their scent was heavy on the air as I walked along the path yesterday.

These scarlet catkins are commonly known as "devil's fingers".

They are produced on the male black poplar tree and are scattered over the ground in the wood walk.

I was lucky to find this whole twig that had broken off and fallen in the wind.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
