hazelnut (corylus avellana) probably; not native in BC (but grown commercially in the fraser valley). i like the involucre on these better than on the native beaked hazel (corylus cornuta), because it is nicely cut and leaves the nut showing. it'll look even better once the nuts are brown.

walklog:

8-28 long mailbox walk, 2.45 km. at least i got my lazy butt outside today because it did not start raining the moment i set foot outside. yay. also, got part of my book shipment from chapters (yay, books!), which means i'll disappear right away into my room again. will document the haul when the rest of the order arrives.

Oh, those are beautiful. Nice cobwebbing on the left one.

That is a gorgeous picture; the focus is so sharp that the texture of the leaves looks like a painting. And involucre is a new word to me, and a pretty one.

remarkable point of focus.

my first thought was actually 'hey, that could be audrey!" (actually, more correctly audrey II).

you could do a whole calender already with just greens, blues and yellows...
