I had exactly one hour to spare for the challenge today. I spent a fair bit of time discovering I have no spring flower stamps *snort*! I guess any excuse to buy more stamps is a good excuse. Then I stumbled on these pussy willows and figured they might be about perfect. Pussy willows are about the very first thing to come out around here. They arrive almost a month before tulips and daffodils.
I love the hope spring brings. I haven't seen any robins yet, but it doesn't mean they aren't here. I bet if I look around, I'll find some.
Late March and early April are our snowiest time of year, so this really is a good vignette of my muddy, barren garden...
Bring on the sun!!
