Pussy Willow time

It’s pussy willow time!  As a small child I enjoyed the arrival of the pussy willows, catkins and lambs’ tails.  They were somehow different from the leaf buds appearing at this time  –  they were unusual, they had character, they were ‘friendly’.  That early attraction has remained  –  I still look forward to pussy willow time!

  1. These buds are always a playful assurance that spring has sprung. I too have fond childhood memories; gathering them in tin foil and bringing them to my teachers:)

  2. Beauties. There was a pussy willow song we used to sing in grade school…maybe you know it? I can only remember the end of it… “warmer winds, your branches shaking, blow your fuzzy coat away.” Thank you for reviving that memory. : )
