I have a fond memory of willow trees as we had a huge one beside our house when I was a kid and I spent alot of time up in that tree. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures.

It´s the kind of tree that inspires people write poetry. Splendid!

Thank you all for visiting my favourite tree. Seems many people have a strong emotional attachment to the willow!

That's true Violet. A blogger friend of mine had one taken down in her garden, and I almost cried when I read about on her blog! Such a shame. I enjoyed the rest of your pictures too, I had missed a couple!

Jientje: I can relate - when I was about 14 our willow had to go when the roots encroached into the neighbours' pool and I still weep for that willow

Your springtime seems to be going at the same rate as our springtime. I love weeping willows and would want to be one if I were a tree.
