“Salix discolor,” male, “past flower”

Hmm. It would seem that Pussy willows come in male and female and we have a male. This is a male plant that has already flowered. Compare to a previous post a year ago, https://365project.org/rhoing/365/2016-04-05

Good to see the other photo which is pretty but this stage of the flower is still so attractive!
