    The furry buds of willow are revealing their brightly colored pollen this week. These pretty catkins are wind pollinated so lots of pollen must be produced by plants. This is great for other willows- not so great for allergy sufferers! #salixdiscolor #willow #horticulture #sneezeseason #catkins #iowa365

    Imagine this - I visited a wonderful garden with several colleagues and Im taking loads of pictures of beautiful plants and then we discovered mealybugs on one plant. These insects and their sticky honeydew fascinated everyone, including myself. I ended up taking more pictures of these mealybugs than any other plant! #mealybugs #pseudococcus #horticulture #entomology
