Spring Colours. Speedwell Flowers and Birch Tree Catkins

'In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.' (Aristotle)

Birch trees are already budding and flowering — a sure harbinger of spring.

A lot of early spring flowers pop up — even the smallest of them are exquisitely beautiful, if you look closely.
I never stop wondering at the complexity of such tiny structures.
