Juniper flowers

I've never really noticed them - & today I spotted some out & thought I'd share a pic or two.
Very very tiny.

At least you have identified what it is :reading: :clap:
Most years, about this time, we get frantic posts wanting to know what pest or disease this is :shake: :shake:

Thanks for sharing KCAR, I've never seen flowers on a juniper before!

Being a gymnosperm, junipers don't have flowers. These are likely to be cones developing.

Hey Mikebot thanks for clarifying.
Through your comment, I've now learnt the difference between Gymnosperms & Angiosperms. :geek:
It's interesting that these take on the appearance of little white flowers - but are impossible to be.
I noticed that Gingko's are also Gymnosperms, and I always thought they produced fruit (but its not actually "fruit" at all.)
