Pussy’s-Toes

I love coming across wildflowers that I don’t see around my area very much. Such was the case when I was hiking with my Mom and I said happily “Pussy’s Toes!” And she says “WHAT?” My response was, “you know, as in kitty cat’s toes.”

Pussy’s-toes (Antennaria neglecta)

I love this little wildflower, because they do look just like kitty cat’s toes, and they’re soft, too.

    There’s a wild flower in the Sierra Nevada Mountains called Pussy Paws. My mother named one of her cats that. 🙂

    That’s so cute Liza! I had to go look it up. What a great name for a kitty cat!

    We have pussy toes in our area growing wildly and in great abundance … various kinds too … mats of them in our own yard even.
