A small tree which has its flowers before its leaves.
The young twigs and buds are covered with small hairs,
the buds are small and brown until the
large male catkins (with long, silky hairs
of a cheerful yellow colour)
and the small, thin, grey female catkins,
burst out of them.
Amongst the games recommended for March are:

All from Something To Do.
