Pussy Willows And Raindrops

Some pussy willow buds

I fluffed up the hay in the feeders then waved  Fate on as she circled the sheep.  It was a damp and dreary morning, I wasn’t planning on spending any more time in the barnyard than necessary.  So I wasn’t paying much attention to what was going on around me.

I was about to go back to the house but for some reason, I’m not even sure why, I turned to look into the woods.  That’s when I saw the bushes on the edge of the marsh shimmering as if they were strung in tiny fairy lights.

I knew right away it was the pussy willows.  Not the buds themselves, but the raindrops on them, turning them to glitter even though the sun was tucked behind the clouds.

The pussy willow bush I saw from the barnyard.

  1. I cut some pussy willows this week and have them in my kitchen. I also purchased a garden plant this week, rosemary. I am getting the itch to garden. Sunday I will start my tomato seeds.
