April 17: Beaked Hazelnut

Doing some yard work around my office, we came upon a Beaked Hazelnut bush in bloom. The almost-microscopic pink blossoms are the female flower, and the phallic catkins are the male flower. (And I think that's part of my finger, bottom right, fondling the catkin.)

Almost missed--
beauty on a very small scale,
thus all the more valued.
