Today, most of the snow and ice has melted in the lake and the pussy willows are out. Can spring be finally on its way here in Alberta? :-)
Pussy willow is a name given to many of the smaller species of the
genus Salix (willows and sallows) when their furry catkins are young
in early spring. [...]
Before the male catkins of these species come into full flower they are covered in fine, greyish fur, leading to a fancied likeness to tiny cats [...]. The catkins appear long before the leaves, and are one of the earliest signs of spring. [...].
Have a lovely day and thanks for dropping by.
