Pussy willow buds or “catkins” opening right before my spring-starved eyes is an amazing nature moment being bestowed upon me this foggy March morning in central Minnesota. Look at the intricate details of the water droplets encompassing the thirsty buds.
I have been fortunate for the past twelve years to only have to peer out my window to witness this transformation of winter to spring! This tree was planted in loving memory of my father in 2004. It now stands proudly above the rooftops. The lovely silky catkins form before the leaves.
There is no life without water hydrating nature and our human souls. I embrace the welcoming moist rain droplets rippling upon my skin. We have survived another winter. Spring awaits and breathes new life in the world around us!
Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions,
