My Little Willow

I only have one tree in the garden
that isn't a fruit tree
my Willow

I love the fresh green leaves in spring
and the perches it provides
for the birds
queuing up for the feeders

I sit beneath its shade to escape the
hot summer sun

And collect its fallen leaves
in autumn

and relish its starkness
in winter

The garden wouldn't be the same without The Willow Tree

  1. I love willows. I don't know what it is about them, they just seem so restful somehow.
