Pussywillows are a welcome sign that the winter is over and warmer days lie ahead. 

In my early years in school, I recall gluing real pussywillows to bare branches drawn on sheets of paper.  I don’t think that’s common practice in schools anymore, as pussywillows aren’t as easily found as they used to be.

This drawing was made with a fine tip black marker.

    I remember doing pussy willow art in school, too! 🙂

      I remember keeping those pictures for years until almost all the pussywillows had fallen off the paper. I also remember ironing a lot of leaves between sheets of wax paper. I don’t remember any of my children doing these activities in school.
