When I were a lad, a few years back (GrinGrinGrin), I always knew these as 'Pussy-Willow'......but I could be wrong ????

I assume they're the 'blossom' of the Willow tree, not sure.....I'm sure the experts out there will know !!

The b/g to the shot was a bit bland, so I've added a mixture of two textures, which I 'defocused' with a bit of
Gaussian-blur..........hope you like it ??

Thanks for your lovely comments & votes for 'Brathay Reflections'......greatly appreciated !!

Jepp...pussy willow was how I knew them as well. Good bg you have added, makes a suitable contrast to the willow.

The softened background textures work well with the crisp buds of the Pussy Willow Keith, nice work with the camera and computer.

Texturing looks good to me. The only thing I'd want to eliminate is that branch behind main
subject.
