They call them pussy-willows,
But there's no cat to see
Except the little furry toes
That stick out on the tree:
I think that very long ago,
When I was just born new,
There must have been whole pussy-cats
Where just the toes stick through----
And every Spring it worries me,
I cannot ever find
Those willow-cats that ran away
And left their toes behind!
It is my Bro A's birthday today and he often visits here. Happy Birthday : )
Mungo my walking companion had a birthday this month too. His first!
*The night is still cold
Let me hold you
Do you know where the wind blows
You sail in love through the sky
And I will keep you close beside me
Am I livin' your dreams?
Take me with you.*
My littlest niece is 5 today!

My mother died 4 years ago today.
The snowdrops aren't the first I have seen this year but these were on the side of the road today and I had the camera in my pocket : )
