My grandmother had pussy willow and I always associate spring with her and my mom bringing branches into the house ..

Great shot...they look so pretty mixed in with a flower arrangement.

Oh Yes! Time to go for a walk by the river and collect some!

Yes, yes, it is spring (I don't mention the 4 inches of snow we had this morning). :-)

It is just coming out here JoAnn - very late this year. We always associate it with the palm and palm Sunday (the sunday before easter), but it was nowhere near out then. I love it and it goes so beautifully with daffodils in a vase.

We used to call them "wussy pillows"...

For me it is official spring when the bloodroot blooms. :)

Karen said...

Oh, lovely soft captures. My pussy willows blossomed about 2 weeks ago, today, it's snowing!

Kay said...

I shouldn't whine that we've still got grey skies, and rain. Sounds like many poor souls are still digging out from snow. I suppose sooner or later we'll all have summer, won't we? Won't we????

I love your pictures! I am not sure that pussy willows grow down here in the deep south?? From the comments of others, they must have a sweet smell as well. Azaleas announce spring here. I am visiting from a Favorite Thing Saturday and am your newest follower. Please stop by Still Woods Farmhouse for a visit!

I think my mom has a story about getting a pussy willow stuck up her nose when she was little. lol

I've yet to see any pussy willows this spring, so I'm very happy you showed them here!

Thanks so much for joining in this week.
