These flower a Day catkins, also called Pussy Willows are described in Wikipedia as slim, cylindrical flower clusters, with inconspicuous or no petals. I didn’t know that about them and wasn’t even sure that they were flowers at all. I so loved the soft beauty of them as they were lit by the evening sun on my walk a couple of days ago that I couldn’t resist including them for you in this project. If you can, I hope you will visit the post and zoom in to see the detail, which is like some creature from outer space. I didn’t see this structure until I viewed it on my computer screen. Isn’t it wonderful? I can’t believe the diversity, intricacy and beauty of plant life in my immediate area, which I am only now beginning to appreciate, thanks to this project of mine. The pandemic has so many downsides for so many people, including us, of course. I have to say, though, that what I have learned as a result of my photographs in this has enriched me in so many ways that I am actually grateful for it. This is my silver lining. I am so glad to be able to share it with you. Hugs to all as I wish you a lovely Saturday. #217
