Flowers on Conifers

Most of the time we don't think of flowers when it comes to conifers but when you click on the above photo and see the new bud opening, it's hard not to see it as a flower.

This photo is of Picea pungens 'Rick's White Tip' and that bud/flower will start to develop new growth which will have a distinct white color to it's new growth. Most spruce trees have a very similar look as their new buds start to open and beautifully contrast by the prominent needles and striking colors that are available in the spruce family.
