fluffy bush

On our autumnal wanderings we came across this bush bursting into fluffy delights. A few strong gusts of wind will ensure that its seeds are spread across the whole valley and beyond. On first sight it looked a bit like hawthorn blossom that we have witnessed a few times in late Spring in the UK but unlike those fresh white flowers beckoning berries, this bush is very much in the late thralls of its annual existence preparing to minimise its energy output over the cold winter months.
