Willow bloom for me

Spring means flowering willows.

Catkins with cottony seeds

This willow is an early bloomer and the cottony fluff is ready to be carried off by a breeze.

Black willow (Salix nigra) 

The black willow catkin looks like a multilegged caterpillar.

Pussy willow (Salix discolor)

These open pussy willow flowers show off their anthers with the yellow pollen.

Seed pod
This seed pod from the previous year awaits dispersal.
