A tree of the 'salix' genus ('sallow' in English), once cultivated for its roof-thatching ability, and with a mighty connection to the Sally Gardens song.

Fine photo - but the roots will be beneath your feet and about 400 yards behind you.

What beautiful trees. That would make a very difficult jigsaw!

Fresh, clean and pleasant on the eye, and almost Wigan...!!

Well done, Dave.

The most 'elegant' tree of the tree world,the branches are more like drapery...

' Willow Weep for Me ' makes a fine accompaniment to this splendid picture. But will it be Ella, Billie , Nina or Sarah ?
