Thanks James - it's just that it is so extraordinarily big!

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 Grass

There 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!)

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.
