Sunday trees 349

Willows abound round here (the village used to be surrounded by marshes, which now are very fertile farmland), so you may see a few featured here over the coming weeks…

  1. Why is there a number 349 in the title of this post? Have I missed 348 other photos of trees? If so, I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Speaking of willows:

    1. The son of Bruce Robinson (who wrote and directed “Withnail & I”) is named Willoughby – and goes by “Willow”. He’s a beautiful boy, and a very talented singer/songwriter, too.

    2. I was just looking on Google Earth at the town in which I grew up. Near the Mill Dam Pond, there’s a large Catholic church which used to have a tremendous, gigundo willow tree on their property, near the edge of the water. Sadly, the tree is gone. Someone has planted a small willow tree in the approximate location of the old one. Perhaps one of those hurricanes we had took the big one down…

    1. Becca (the host of Sunday trees) has been posting for 349 weeks, can you believe?? I have not been so consistent!!
      1. I did wonder about his name, as Willow is usually a girl’s name…
      2. Am glad they’ve replaced the old willow – they do have shallow roots (reach far outwards, but not that deep), so are prone to being blown over :/
