Some of the branches that I am forcing are blooming. It is so fun. It has really helped me to get through this last ugly month happily. I went and cut the branches from some local businesses. Kelly thinks I am a rebel. I didn't know that pussy willows pollinated? Weird
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
