Friday Finds....Pussy Willow

I would love to be able to say I found the pussy willow whilst out walking today.......unless you count walking around Marks & Spencers ;-)
I spotted a lovely huge bunch there whilst shopping for our Valentines Day dinner.
I have to confess to stroking them a lot...I'm surprised there are any furry bits left on the branches actually.
Textures: Kim Klassen's 'All my loving', '99' and 'Natures Beauty' all soft light.

Thank goodness...........

Oh these are so lovely! I assume they are real? Now you have me dreaming (way too early) of pussy willows. Beautiful images and great texture work!

Linda said...

Thank you Barb.....and yes, they are real :-)

It is sooo nice to see pussy willows this time of year, as it is snowing again, right now. I'll be dreaming along with Barb. Very lovely!!

I love the soft effect that this technique gives. There is a pussy willow tree which leans over our wall. Needless to say it loses a few sprigs each spring!

Amanda said...

Very nice! That spring thing can't be far away surly.
