Joyful Spring~

Sweet Friends~
I hope your Spring days are filled with joy!

Pussy willows follow their own calendar~
They're not waiting for the snow to stop falling!
Went for a nice long walk along the Erie Canal trail with my neighbor today.
The sky was so blue!
Sun on our shoulders...
Canada geese filled areas of the canal waters. They were so chatty!
They are here with us throughout the winter months but
many traveling flocks stop here with the snow geese.

Came home and noticed that the pussy willow buds were completely open!
Lopped off some of the tallest branches for bouquets to share &
left some to open for the bees that will be seeking nourishment soon~

Hope you have a wonderful week, Friends!
Thanks so much for stopping by~

"Rabbit & Chickadee Go Gathering" copyright 2019 Michelle L. Palmer

Chickadee has found the perfect assistant! 
Rabbit will deliver her sweet treat to the base of the tree
where her nestlings await dessert!
Perhaps Mr. Chickadee will bring home a dollop of whipped cream.

Rabbit will rest in the shade and enjoy his snack before heading home
with a pussy willow bouquet for his family.

Our pussy willows have started to open!
Little fuzzy buds trying to break through their winter shells...
Nice to see hints of Springtime.
We have a few sprigs tucked in a jar with water.
They will be fully open by the end of the week~

Hope your March days have been a little more sunny...
A touch warmer and filled with happiness, Friends~
