Are those Birch?

Not sure why Lucy but this great shot makes me feel very nostalgic.

Catkins always make me think of school nature lessons.

I have heard of them, but like VP not seen them before, I like that now I can say I know what a catkin looks like, thanks Lucy.

They look like caterpillar cocoons. Interesting tree.

Hello Joaquin. I think the tree with the caterpillars is a Birch.

Bonjour Walk in New York - cette arbre est a cote d'une ligne ancienne ou il y avait un chemin de fer. Il y a des maisons tout pres mais l'atmosphere, comme vous avez dit, est bucolique.

Magiceye, VP, Perth Daily Photo and T. Becque . . . I was surprised that several of you mentioned that you are unfamiliar with catkins - so I've made a special post about this tree on my other blog.

If you would like to see more of it, and of the catkins at different stages, here is the link to the post.

Juan Fuentes - visits to your unusual blog are always interesting.

Hello Toffeeapple - yes, birch, but, as you have already seen from my other post, I am as yet uncertain what kind.

Hermes and Easygardener - I think it is that association with school nature lessons which draws us to catkins - though maybe most to Pussy Willow?
