ça commence

i learned something new today:  poplars are in the willow family.

this branch came from a very large and unmistakable poplar tree, yet the buds looked just like pussy willow. i spent the remainder of my morning walk puzzled, with a “pussy willow poplar” in my hand.  back home, google helped solve the mystery.
