Making Some Sunshine

image

Some days...you just have to make your own sunshine...

Yeah...my sunshine started out like this...

We had to turn a few cartwheels to get it to look like the top photo...

I even used Photoshop Elements 9...

See the Curly Willow...I cut a lot of branches off of my tree before Christmas...

I tied them up with some jute and put them on my front porch...no water...just bare branches...

Yesterday I snipped off some cuttings to put with my buttercups...

The branches were sprouting little green leaves!!!

Do any of you great gardeners know if they might root???

If you can’t find any sunshine...

  1. Curly willow is prolific. It will root. We stood one branch up in a concrete block on the asphalt driveway and it turned into a tree, roots and all! Your photo was beautiful before photoshop too.

  3. Very pretty and spring like. Curly willow will root in water, or just stickit in the ground in the fall or spring. The same goes for the forsythia and pussy willow.

  5. Enjoyed looking at your beautiful photos..... definitely looks like spring.

    None of the flowers you've shown will grow in our area, so it's nice to see something different.

  13. My gardening skills (few that I had) went down the drain long ago. Don't know about the curly willow, but if it sprouting green after this long, it probably will.
