Another sallow flowers

This time some male catkins on what I identify as goat willow (Salix caprea).

The sallows flower

Two of the self-sown sallows in WBX are carrying flowers (because if forgot, or omitted to coppice them last autumn).  I think this will do more good that harm, but I will try a rotational system in the future leaving some to grow up for two or three years before cutting back.

The female catkins in WBX below are, strictly, the grey willow (Salix cinerea).
