hazel flower

20160212-144025

Today I managed to take a photograph of one of the tiny hazel flowers that was referred to in my post yesterday.

“`From those little red bits, the nuts come; if they receive pollen from the long danglers.’
`Little red flames, little red flames,’ murmured Hermione to herself. And she remained for some moments looking only at the small buds out of which the red flickers of the stigma issued.”

from Women in Love by D H Lawrence

  1. I cannot tell yiu how much I am loving these reference to Lawrence. I need no prompting ever to read his books or his poems but contextualised with your photos it is quite blissful 🙂
