Pussy Willows!

18 01 2008

Received a wonderful surprise at my doorstep the other day: a beautiful giant vase of tulips and pussy willows from a friend (I’d done her a favor, never expecting this!). Pussy willows make me so nostalgic for my childhood. They used to grow along the railroad tracks in back of my cousin’s house and we’d pick them by the armloads, pick off the furry bits and collect them in jars.pussywillows.jpg

They are a sure sign of spring around here. My heart lifted just seeing your title.

Great shot, and they remind me of my grandmother, who loved them.

I too have inordinately fond memories of pussy willows. When I was in kindergarten, my teacher gave me a bunch of them as a reward for knowing my own address (and being able to spell it too – Providencia was a pretty big word for a little kid) and phone number.
