Sweden: Now Featuring…Spring!

I hear reports that dandelions have now been spotted at the space campus here in Kiruna. I haven’t personally seen them, but I can share a photograph of another flower, spotted after dinner last night:

This is a kind of flower that I want to call a catkin. I don’t know if that’s correct. But that’s what I want to call it, which I think gives it at least a 50% chance of being right. I’m also going to guess that the plant is some kind of willow. Anyway, isn’t it pretty? Several of these flowers had insects crawling around on them. Pollination in action!
