Signs of Spring: Pussy Willows

I’ve decided that I’m going to create my own theme for the week, Signs of Spring. I really don’t have to look too hard. These pussy willows were discovered when I was out for a run so when the kids came home from school and begged to take the dog for a walk I knew just where to go.

We are so fortunate that the sun has been shining these past few days because without it it would feel like the depths of winter only without the snow. It’s been cold! Cold and windy.

A true testament to the amount of light being the primary factor in promoting new growth are all the buds I see on the trees. Now, if it would only warm up we’d also see blooms.

  1. Yay for spring! Hope it warms up soon, too. It’s been chilly here since yesterday (in the 50’s) and I’ve had to turn the heat back on.
    I love the first photo. Pussy willows always remind me of Easter… my mom would buy a few of them and hang the blown-out & decorated Easter eggs on the branches and use it as a center piece.
