  1. So beautiful, photo and words. I have a thing for willows. Loved this.

  2. A perfect combination. 🙂

  3. You find such interesting and unusual vistas to share with us. I love live willows, but none would survive in the soil where I live.

  4. very cleverly combined my dear but how sad and that photo…so sad:(

  5. I think I might find myself weeping too!

  6. A willow’s roots belong near water.

  7. alas
    poor willow


  8. I am not exactly sure why, but this makes me cry! (It’s beautiful, both words and pictures, it just brings tears to my eyes).
