Cherry Blossom Ready for Pollenation

A detached cherry blossom in which the pollen-bearers are mature. The pollen may be shaken into a watch crystal for future use or it may be applied directly to the head of a flower prepared in the way shown earlier. The object, of course, is to bring the pollen of one flower to the pistil of another. The bees aid constantly in accomplishing the same purpose.
