Friday, just rambling on…

Pussy Willow [single]

I was given some PussyWillow cuttings a couple of weeks ago.  I have them in a container of water on my table.  They are so beautiful!  I noticed tonight that they have roots. \O/  I am going to plant them in a pot and hope they grow.  I am not sure they will grow confined to a pot, they are kinda freedom lovin plants.  But I am going to try to encourage them to be happy on my little balcony.

I love PussyWillows. (I really am a crazy cat lady, I even like furry plants.) When I was a kid we had lots of bushes growing in our yard.  It seems everybody had some and they also grew wild along the roads and in the parks and fields.  I don’t see them here very often, I think it is a bit hot for them.

My daisy-like plants and snapdragons are starting to get little green leaves.  So exciting to see them.  Hopefully, any late frost will not hurt them.

When I was cleaning my balcony off the other day, pigeons are a problem, ugh, I started making plans for planting.  Won’t be long and I will get my hands in the dirt and have some fun.  I sometimes think it would be nice to have an actual yard–but then I come to my senses and realize a yard would be work.  A balcony of pots and planters of flowers is easy and fun.

Today, I am ready to put away sweaters and shoes and get into  tee shirts and sandals and sit in the sun and watch life begin anew.
