Pussy willow tree in bloom

I should walk to that pussy willow tree again tomorrow… or whenever the sun will come out! This is the first tree, that is blooming here in Latvia…. and one of the first plants that are blooming: snowdrops and pussy willows… what else? I can’t recall. Coltsfoot?! But I guess that’s later.

 

So…the pussy willow is blooming and it should be full of bees and insects to gather the nectar and pollen! But it wasn’t when I was there (OK, you can see one bee in upper picture). Sun is the answer. There wasn’t the sun, more like cloudy with a chance of rain.

I should come back when the sun is shining to see if it’s full of insects or not! I love spring!

I should go for a walk (a bit longer, then usually)  to see if the coltsfoot is blooming already!

P.S. Safe Palm Sunday to you all. Here in Latvia, it’s called Pūpolsvētdiena (in translation: pussy willow Sunday).
