The pussy willow tree that is growing in my mother-in-law’s flower bed is so beautiful right now. This afternoon the vibrant red buds against such a blue sky really jumped out at me. I wonder if they will remain red through the winter.
I can’t wait until spring (or late winter) when this tree will be covered in it’s furry catkins. That will be a glorious sight.
Someday I’d like to have a dry arrangement with pussy willow branches in it. They’ll bring to mind my Grandma who shared a love for pussy willows too.
