About Today’s Photo:
Willow blossoms come in all shapes and sizes. I’ll admit that I’m not thoroughly up to speed on ID-ing all the different varieties of salix, but I do know that, on close examination with a macro lens (or my reading glasses…) that some of them are quite intricate and beautiful. These fit that bill well!
