Pussy Willow

Before you is a pussy willow, a sure sign of spring. In the spring these willows have fuzzy catkins (small flower clusters) on the bare branches in early spring. In many cultures around the world pussy willow cuttings are used in holiday celebrations including Chinese New Years in Asia, Easter in Europe and America, and Nowruz (First Day of Spring) in the Middle East.,
