Those look like galls from either an insect or bacterial infestation. Since the galls are out of focus , it is hard to be more specific.. Do a Google search on "insect galls" and check out the images. There is one there that looks like tiny pink chestnut burs. They aren't identified as to what created them , but I'm sure further searching on the galls will come up with a positive id .
