A colleague at work gave me flowers last week.
A little more wilted than you thought?
They’re actually hand-me-down flowers. Her husband gave her a beautiful pot of spring blooms: hyacinths, mini-daffodils and pussy willows.
She had no desire to plant the bulbs now that the flowers are finished blooming, so she passed the pot on to me. I think the flowers will make a beautiful addition to our gardens, but I’m most excited about the pussy willow.
One of the stalks has sprouted.
Pussy willow is my favourite shrub. I’ve always wanted one. I know they root fairly easily. I hope I can keep this stalk alive, so that it will grow into a bush.
Anyone have any tips for growing pussy willow? What’s your favourite spring flower? Do you have bulbs at your house?
