Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Pussy Willows in May?

Last week I reported how far behind Nature is at higher elevations. Pussy willows are the very first sign of springs in our valley. They can be spotted as early as February. But at 1200m altitude they are showing their delicate beauty only now in the second week of May. On my way to Vernon I stopped by to have another look at Lost Lake where I had taken a photo of the Canada geese the week before. Enjoy.

    All are lovely, Peter. But my favorite is the first one. Maybe due to its clear reflection..

    Beautiful photography, Pwrwe. Love the pussy willows. They are just popping out in the Far North, a little early. Lost Lake looks like a lovely refuge.

    I like the second picture with the muted greens reflecting off the water. Nice to see Spring is there in your region.

    Great photos, Peter, and happy to see the willows, I always stop to pet a few when I go by.

    Ooh! I love these! And I think that Weidenkaetzchen sounds much nicer than pussy willows. 😄
