signs of spring!

On our walk Thursday...

pussy willows,



the first rhododendrons blooming (they're always pink),


crocuses,


and the sun didn't set till after dinner!

Okay, I'm officially jealous. :)

Aw... I'd ship some of our spring to you if I could. ;)

Oh,Violet, I can't believe you have a real spring, with such a short winter. We won't see that for at least six weeks, maybe more.

Looks great. Our mom used to gather pussywllows every spring and put them in a vase when we were kids growing up in New Hampshire.

Julana, we'll have a bit more winter for sure. But the flowers seem to weather that just fine.

Paul - yes, pussy willows remind me of childhood too. One never forgets the soft, silky feel of them, together with that lovely name -- food for the imagination!
