The pussy willows on the willow tree in our back yard have started to open .  I can see the white silvery catkins from my kitchen window thinking they need to be picked before they bolt on the stem.   I used the long branch trimmer to cut the end branches off and then brought them into our house placing them in a dry glass vase.

The sketch above was done with colored pencil on bristol rough paper.  I discovered it was too much tooth for colored pencil.
