White fluff on clipped box bushes

I have a white fluffy bloom on some of my clipped box bushes. It floats around on the breeze. What is it?

    have you got any willows around you?

    my garden (and house) is full of fluffy bits from willow catkins

    It is probably caused by box aphid, I get it on my box hedge, I do not treat it as it does not seem to cause any long term damage.
