Spring Fever

Oh how I love pussy willows. Doesn't this just make you want to plant flowers and dig in the earth? When I was young I remember walking on the county road and gathering a bunch of these to put in water at home. There is just something about the soft sweetness of a pussy willow that makes the day brighter. Spring hurry!

ok - now I'm really jealous! Pussy willows and look at all that green grass!! We still have quite a bit of snow here - just a bit dirty - still cold, cabin fever has set in.

I love pussy willows! I remember you used to have a big wicker vase or something that held a bunch of pussy willow branches, and I loved to sit and pet the little soft paws (I thought they looked/felt like little cat or rabit paws).

Jill, you were such a "special" child. Anywho, I recall these as well, and they are so cool looking!
