Our Willow and the Storm.
Once upon a time a forester friend gave us a willow cutting. Over the years it grew into a magnificent weeping willow whose branches swept over our drive and our neighbour’s.
Whenever we offered to have “her” branches trimmed our neighbour would beg us not to : she liked the sensation of driving through the leaves!!
This morning we found the tree on the ground covering the drives of two of our neighbours!
We were lucky to have the problem dealt with very quickly but saddened to see what was left of our old friend.
There is now a gap in the skyline and in our hearts.
