“There is no spring without the willow”, they say in Russia…

Time to get out of bed World; the Pussy Willows are blooming…

Our village is loaded with Pussy Willows and in Moscow there has to be a million babushkas everywhere, trying to sell Pussy Willow branches to the ones needing a tidbit of redemption for their souls, is how I look at it…

“There is no spring without the willow”, they say in Russia…
“The Pussy Willow is also our Easter symbol”, they say in Russia…
“No not palms, but Pussy Willows”, they say in Russia…
“Pussy Willow is the one that tells the rest of the world it’s time to wake up”, they say in Russia…

“Great Week – Holy Week” proceeding the important Easter Sunday, which many Russians believe is the resurrection of Christ… (And thus I do also from my upbringing in America…)
