Spring is creeping in slowly on little cat feet. When I drove past my friend Paul’s house I saw the fat pussies on his willow by the side of the road. I dashed home to see if my pussywillow was blooming. Both of us have bushes growing in a wet spot, and both produce fat soft pussies.
Alas, my bush is just beginning to bloom. Why the difference? Micro-climate? Very different variety?
