Tree Watching in Seattle: It’s Pussy Willow Time

February 12, 2012

Dense cluster of pussy willows

Something is happening here with my “adopted” willow tree.  Suddenly its branches hold a profusion of pussy willows.  Each little fur-bud holds a rainbow of colors, not just gray.  Beautiful!

Look at all the colors in each little bursting bud

I brought one specimen home to paint

    It is amazing to see how much pink there is in those grey pussy willows!
