I am so glad they made it out. Remember when I posted mine and you lamented how it seems to be forever before you would have any. Time flies and Spring is here. MB

We usually found these pussy willows around the Chinese New Year , in early February. But of course they are brought in from overseas, as they don't grow well in the tropical. Very beautiful.

Pussy willows are some of my favorite signs of spring :)!

Just discovered that pussywillows play a role in the celebration of Easter of many Eastern European peoples who carry pussywillows instead of palm branches on Palm Sunday. So your post is very timely! And a beautiful photograph too I must say.

Bautiful pussy willows - I've always loved them since I first became aware of them as a young child.

see you there! said...

Makes me want to run right to the flower mart and buy some branches - they aren't readily available for picking here.

Are pussy willows so much fun? Well, if a plant can be fun! They always fascinated me as a child. :)

Beautifully photographed! You have really nice depth of field in that one.

And in response to your question about the daffodil in mine, yes - it's blooming in my yard, even as we speak. Thanks for stopping by!

Me too, me too! Pretty and soft looking.

For many Chinese Singaporeans, the Puss Willow is a must for Chinese nEw Year decor. This year, I guess the winter cold has cause them to be delayed. The poor farmers must be crying, because Chinese New Year is long gone.
