[willow branches in a planter outside a somber post office in an industrial neighborhood of Seattle]

It’s been very gloomy the last few days. So gloomy even the willow branches somebody lovingly put in a planter outside the post office manage to look nothing but wet and cold. Willow branches should not look foreboding.

    When I was little my favorite thing about early spring was picking the little fuzzy pieces off of willow branches. I would play with them like tiny stuffed animals….I was easily amused back then.

    I love pussy willows. They are one of my favorites (they were part of my bouquet for my wedding).
