Macro Monday – Beech in Flower

The beech forest is at its loveliest this time of the year – and this year there is an abundance of flowering trees. Pollen is everywhere. Walking in the forest covers you in this fine ”dust” and the lakes and brooks all have a thin yellow layer on their surface.

We guess this is all due to last years’ dry conditions.

      • I was too late for the flowers! But lovely wine coloured seed capsules are just forming. I’ve never seen them at this stage. Fascinating, Ann-Christine. So thank you for inspiring me to go and look. So much we don’t actually notice.

      • Glad to have been inspirational in this, Tish – we get so much from our fellow bloggers, and I am always very grateful. Sorry you were too late for the flowers, but next year maybe! I will have to look for the capsules.

      • Am amazed how soft and rather woolly they look at this early stage. I truly had no idea about the development of the beech nut, though as a child I always liked to collect the outer shells once the nuts had been expelled.
