buds of spring....

....tulips and pussy willows ....
....buds of spring...

....saw a bush of pussy willows yesterday....stopped the car and borrowed a few....childhood memories came flooding back.... days hunting for the first signs of spring....rubbing my face with these little tufts of beauty ...while hearing my grandma sing.....tiny fur like buds are sprung...where little kittens once had clung...and that's the legend, so they claim...how pussy willows got their name.

I absolutely love the pussy willow picture! It reminded me of my childhood too...before I even read what you had written :)

Beautiful photos...it makes me excited to think that spring is almost here. I love your grandma's sweet song too.
