A bonny tree nicely-done, Dave. Thanks.

Wiki' reckons there could be a connection between the willow tree and the song Down by the Salley Gardens i.e; Latin (salix) English (sallow) Irish (Saileach).
Whatever, I'll shortly be giving James Galway's version of the tune, another wafting.

Philip G. I recommend the version by Clannad.

Oh Yes!: I've just listened to your suggested version for the first time JD and . . . well . . . I think it's better than Mr Galway's version. Many thanks.
