I bought a Pussy Willow last weekend at a little market near the lake. There’s a general store, deli, antiques, and best of all, a nursery next door. They must be affiliated because there were all sorts of plants on the porch for sale. The blossoms on the Pussy Willow caught my eye and at $14.95, it had to come home with me! My father-in-law and sister-in-law were with us, so we had to very carefully load the new plant. It just barely fit!
I planted this in a corner of our yard along a fence line. It has rained so much this past week that I haven’t yet taken a picture of it in its new home. I just hope the deer will leave it alone. I sprayed it with Liquid Fence after I planted it and it will be safe for the time being. I’ll just have to remember to keep reapplying it.
I’ll know that it’s truly spring each year when this blooms!
