I am trying to learn more about cypresses. This is a gorgeous Cashmerian Cypress flowering or sending out pollen or whatever it is that it does. I have been researching on the internet but not really learning a lot. Like for instance does this tree have male and female whatevers on the same tree? This picture is greatly magnified (aren't the new cameras wonderful?) and the first day I spotted these little thingies they were all closed up and the next they were brown and opening. What happens next? I hope to know soon but if you know then please tell me.
