One Sunny Day

Yesterday the sun came out from behind the clouds for a little while. Its rays seemed to spotlight the willow tree in my neighbours’ yard. In the early spring it begins to get buds that signal that winter is (or should be) over.

I had to get a close up of these pussywillows. They are so representative of spring. I felt a hopeful anticipation of warmer days to come.

It can’t be long now…. Can it?

Have you seen any signs of spring where you live?

  1. My Mother used to love these. When I was a kid and they were in season, there was always a bunch on the table. Have never seen any since I live here in Florida …… πŸ™‚
    Cheers !

  2. I love pussy willows! I cannot wait to see forsythia bushes in bloom, their pretty yellow is so cheery. Grass is green in many areas but haven’t taken a walk to see if there are crocus greens coming up. . . It was only in 30’s again today. hugs xo

    • LOL That was yesterday! It’s cold again today. But I agree it’s definitely more coastal weather here. I think (I hope) the worst is over, but it will be weeks before it’s warm enough to garden seriously.

  3. Oh my gosh, I miss pussy willows! We had them in Michigan, but I have never seen them in Arizona. In fact, we used to go on nature walks in school and girl scouts and always looked for pussy willows and cattails. πŸ™‚
