It looks rather cute with the little pink tuft. But what on earth is it?
If you had pointed your cursor at the picture it would have told you that it is the female flower of a twisted hazel – the catkins are the male flowers. Nature again – she is amazing!
Goodness, I never noticed that catkin flowers were pink. And I never thought of pointing my cursor at the picture. Or my finger as I am using my tablet..Cathy, you are full of handy computing tricks.
How does it work with a tablet if you were doing the equivalent of hovering with your cursor, then? See, I am ignorant about tablets! The male flowers (the catkins) would not be pink though – and I did have to google to check exactly what the pick tufts were, as they were new to me too! If you go into advanced settings when you edit a picture and give it a title this title then comes up when you ‘point’ at it – particularly useful for puzzling WWs!
I don’t think I am ready for advanced settings.
The equivalent of hovering with your cursor is poking with your finger but it doesn’t work for this. Maybe I need a special app or something.
What plant is this? That pink turf is awesome!
Hi Ben – it’s the female flower of a twisted hazel. Catkins are the male flowers. Fascinating, isn’t it?
