330/365 Flower basket accents

Spring has arrived early on the kitchen table. It's full of beautiful flower baskets, and one contains a few branches of pussy willow as an accent.

The way the furry buds grow, or what are technically called "catkins" (interesting), remind me a little of peanuts inside their reddish-brown seed coats. I know it's a stretch, but you can see the resemblance on the top catkin in this photo.

The rest of it bears no resemblance to a peanut, and just stands alone as a fun spring plant.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens and external E-TTL flash, 1/125s, f/5.6 at ISO 400
