I absolutely love the pussy willow catkins.
The little silvery buds are so soft and are beautiful enough
but then they explode into life like little fireworks!
From a distance the the dusting of yellow on the tops of the trees is like lemon sherbet.
There is a lamp design in progress. I'm going to enjoy using the laser cutter and the light to create those little explosions!
Sherbet Lemon Dusting – well chosen to describe the appearance of these little friendly, furry buds covered in pollen. I only caught a glimpse of these yesterday, possibly because none grow near my usual routes. I shall hopefully find more now I know what to look for.Catherine Hilditch
