pussy willows

As I walked past the grocery store floral shop yesterday I noticed pussy willows for sale.


We have a pussy willow plant growing in our yard, so I was interested in finding out how much a small branch would set me back.


At a buck a branch
I figure I have a small fortune growing in my front yard


DIY Guy was happy to help me trim the plant -- 


I'm sure he could see $$ signs on every branch he cut.
Here's a tip if you want your own pussy willow plant --- buy one of those $1 branches and stick it in water.  It will grow roots over a week or two.  Plant the rooted branch in a sunny spot -- and next year you will have lots more pussy willow branches.
If you live close enough to stop by here -- I will GIVE you a few branches!


We are heading out tomorrow to spend some time with 2 of my sisters and their families.
Cara and Tim will be there.
Mike is coming with us too.
Friends are staying at the house keeping Gabby company -- Gabby isn't allowed at the retreat center we are going to.  sad.

Talk to y'all in a few days!
Have a wonderful Easter celebrating Christ's resurrection.
