Hellllooo, Spring

Pussywillow

Today is the vernal equinox, A.K.A the first day of spring. So I ask ya, why is there no holiday for this?

We've all been looking forward to this for months. Shouldn't we be painting ourselves pink, wearing floppy yellow hats and blue boas, handing out flowers ... something?

I'm just sayin'.

Oh, I love pussy willow! and those are so beautiful! what a great shot! It surely doesn't feel like spring here today, it's cold and windy, rainy, then a little sun, but the wind is so cold! I am so ready for some warm weather! Thanks for the photo! that helped!

If you live where winter is a season, it really should be a holiday. I say get up a petition and make it happen!

Happy Spring!

What a graet idea! Of course, then we'd have to have a holiday for summer, fall and winter, too. Your pussy willow capture brings back memories of childhood and my walking to school. I've never seen them in person since. Great photo, Vicki! Happy Spring!

Sylvia, hang in there, darlin'. Spring is on its way. Here's hoping you don't have to wait long.

Char, that is not a bad idea. I wouldn't have to look far for signatures here in Indiana, I'm sure of that.

And Spooky, I wouldn't mind that either. We definitely should celebrate the equinoxes and solstices, don't you think? I seem to have a pagan streak, don't I. Pagan Presbyterian. That's me.

Rambling, thanks! I've never had a pussywillow bush before. I didn't konw they got so big. They're pretty cool, I must say.

Yes! We should be handing out beautiful sprigs of pussy willows!

I remember well the bush that grew in the yard of my childhood home.

This year, I think I may plant one.
Happy Spring!
