Symbol of Spring — A Pussy Willow Wreath: This miniature wreath is woven with sweet, wild willow twigs adorned with soft, downy catkins. Dried flowers may be added for extra color and texture, and we can create a little nest in the center to hold a pretty artificial bird or eggs, making a delightful symbol of spring to enjoy year round.

Materials cost $10.

The Pleasure of Poetry: You can express your thoughts and feelings in a poem, essay, reflection, song….Share something you’ve written with our group, and get tips on how to face that blank page and express yourself. No fee.
