Thanks James - it's just that it is so extraordinarily big!Lucy
I agree Lucy - willows that big?I usually see willows either weeping or edging some pond or stream, sending out lots of shoots, bearing pussy-feet in Spring and turning orange over winter. Still - if James says it is a willow I'm sure it is.
Hello Weaver of GrassThere are different kinds of willows.This one is not of the weeping kind (!).I used to live where cricket bat willows were grown - and they looked like small poplars.I knew willows can grow big - it's just that I don't come across them often so, although I was almost certain, I was reticent about saying so 'for definite'.A little while back, I happily labled an agave as an aloe.(And was glad when Jenn at Garden Djinn sorted me out!)Lucy
It looks like a willow to me also! Great photo Lucy.. I find I am doing a few upwards shots of trees now days ..and then I think of you:)
Thank you, Far Side of Fifty.And apologies for replying to Weaver of Grass while I had the wrong post box open.This made it look as if someone called Collected (Mail) had left a comment.Lucy
