hints of spring

pairs of shivering catkins,
like green caterpillars
or new lambs' tails

dusty pollen drops onto the female red tufted bud


  1. The cycle continues. Here in the snow, I can only dream of it.

  2. Thanks for your comment Barb. I have added your blog to my blog list here. This year we have yet to get snow. And snow is beautiful but a bit redundant here, just makes me want to ski. I envy you the mountains and country, although here it is very lovely in its own way.
