We have a very large weeping willow at the bottom of the garden, and today from the house it definitely had a green tinge.
When I went to look – the leaves were starting to sprout. The world around here is “greening up”

It’s sprouting out alright. Love Weeping Willows – I wish I could have one but I’d never get to see it get huge and wonderful. Well, that’s what Blotanical is about I guess. I can enjoy other peoples trees and gardens.

Thanks for visiting Raingardener – I have to say, I would not have planted such a huge tree in a garden, but it is here, it is quite old, and i love it.

Could we cut the willow and weave it to make a fence to put round your new piece of garden?

Will have to look to see if our willow is greening up yet – sadly it’s not the weeping variety.

Greening up it is. Wow … lovely!

You’re right, weeping willows are an early indicator that spring is on the way. Yet they’re not celebrated like daffodils or primroses. I wonder why that is?

They do seem to come into leaf before other trees – and the colour is quite wonderful, I don’t know why daffodils get all the attention in Spring, Good question 🙂 Thanks for visiting Victoria.

Ah, a weeping willow. Possibly the Most Romantic Tree Ever. My great-aunts (amazing gardeners) had one on their acreage, right at the edge of a creek. I used to play under it for hours. Thanks for jolting my memory, I hadn’t thought about it in a long while!

Hi Greenwalks, sounds like a nice memory playing under the weeping willow. I am quite attached to ours – but it is far to big for this garden. Thanks for dropping by

Buds are one thing – but actual green leaves means real spring has arrived at last. Woohoo!

Yes – things are definitely taking on a green tinge here – so next stop Spring! 🙂
