Truth Heinzman has just a few weeks in which to enjoy her pussy willow tree, now in full bloom. “When it comes into bloom, it’s a little piece of beauty,” says Heinzman. As a little girl, the Sun Rivers resident says, she always loved to dig in the dirt and see stuff grow. She bought the tree on a whim and added it to her garden. Now, the tree brightens her winter days, offering hope for an early spring and a return to her love of gardening.
