Willow-Palooza (more willow shots)

Finally remembered my camera yesterday, so here are some better willow- budding pics.

Also, this great twig pic. It shows very clearly the boundary between the old/gray bark, and the new/ green/ photosynthesizing(?) bark. All of the new leaf-buds sprout from the green bark, none from the gray.

Quick snowstorm put down a couple inches on the benches this morning, so I may be off the foothills for a couple of days… Already sunny and melting though. I never cease to be surprised at how quickly the weather changes here, especially in the Spring.

Hey do you or anyone know of any Hybrid Willows in the valley (salt lake or utah) that I could go take some starts from?
