Broussonetia kazinoki in flower

These wonderful flowers on the Broussonetia kazinoki on the edge of Systematic Beds are such a contrast of hard, knotty globe at the centre of a diaphanous halo of pale lilac-pink filaments. Are they flowers? Not sure! But the garlands of pale neon lanterns strung from silver-haired stems and sheltering beneath silver-haired leaves are a joy.
This tree is a member of the Mulberrry, Moraceae, family and the flowers are followed by equally extraordinary, orange jelly-like fruits, each shaped like a little finger, replete with fingernail indentations.
