The Pussywillows are in bud–a perfect time to cut some branches to bring inside. Place the branches in a tall vase with warm water and watch them slowly unfurl.
The soft downy bloom reminds me of baby duck down or bunny fir–both very reminiscent of childhood Easters.
My uncle raised rabbits and would occasionally bring baby bunnies to the family Easter dinner for the kids to hold. I miss holding a small living thing in my hands. Life is what Easter is all about.
