W and X are for…

In my garden there are many trees.  One of the most interesting is this corkscrew willow tree.  Unfortunately, as you can see, back in May when this photo was taken, much of this tree was dying.  This last week the tree was chopped down and became and X-willow:

I am sad to lose this tree.  The garden looks different, rather bare:

And I will no longer have the opportunity for pictures like this one:

At least I don’t have to worry about branches falling on the fence and damaging my neighbors’ property:

I hope to get 3 -4 apple trees and a flowering cherry to fill along the back fence.  That should make up for the loss of the willow tree.



  1. I weep for the willow.

  2. Your yard does look sort of naked. Oh well, no giant tree falling on your neighbor’s property is likely a good thing.
