Thinking Spring

Because our spring has been somewhat erratic, I chose to find a sign of spring that I can count on.

Simple Things #2

As the weather warms and the rain falls, the pussy willows are making the transition from fuzzy buds to leaves.  I was able to save these two small branches for indoor photography.  They were very cooperative models.

A Little Bit Creepy

While out wondering around on a foggy Duluth day, I came upon this broken and twisted clump of trees.  I felt it had so much character, especially in the fog.

Simple Pleasures

Spring brings certain simple pleasures along with the warming weather.  One of my favorites is the emergence of the pussy willows.  There is that brief period when they break open to expose the little fuzzy precursor to the actual leaf.  When harvested in this state and kept dry, they will last for months.  However, if you add water to the container they will continue their natural path to leafing out.
