End of March beginning of April the weather was too warm and too dry – but spring sprung showing some beautiful buds.

I’m about 98% sure that the second photo is a horse chestnut, aka Aesculus hippocastanum. Less sure about the first one, but I think it’s some species of birch.

Yes, the second could be a Horse Chestnut – it’s just missing the little side buds…
I think the first one is a Corkscrew Hazel. Put the mouse over the photo and you see my guesses 🙂 thanks for stopping by!
