Marvellous close-up !! Anna-Maria, it could be that the red buds just aren't mature yet !!

A favourite! I think they may be the catkins of Salix Melanostachys......:))

Annamaria..so pretty. The red and yellow are the stamens of the plant.. As Barbara said it is a Salix and the red ones are not quite in bloom....I always associate Pussy Willow with Easter..we always had Pussy Willow and Daffodils at that time of year...these are very Early .....
