On Little Cat Feet

My friend's pussywillows

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?

  • It’s so interesting how, driving around town, other people’s plants can be so far ahead of mine – I’ll have a snow squall going on here, and down the hill in town it’s raining! We have our own zone up here, I think.

    Cyndy – Micro climates are a great mystery. Once we were staying in a friends house and woke up to the end of a blizzard. When it stopped we had more than 6 inches of snow, but when we went down to the bottom of the driveway the sun was shining and the road was wet, but no snow.

    Our pussy toes are also emerging. I can hardly keep my fingers off of them.

  • Every year I wish that I had them! Some day……. meanwhile, I enjoyed looking at yours.
