Skywatch Friday

The weeping willows are showing their leaves.

I like the shadows from the morning sun.

The branches and leaves show well on a cloudy morning, as well.

And here is the weeping willow with a cousin from the willow family.

I'm loving the effect of the weeping willows' branches against the blue sky. Great captures! :)

Both the forsythia and weeping willow posts are real treats for me--neither do well in north Texas (although one neighbor has a forsythia bush that blooms in January and lasts about a day). When I lived on Long Island, the arrival of forsythia was (along with snow drops) THE sign that spring was on the way. Weeping willows, though lovely, here signal a waste of water during drought, and so are a guilty pleasure for those who grow them. These are lovely photos--thank you for providing a vicarious pleasure!

These are my favourite trees - they seem so soft and romantic.

I love it when trees are all lacy green like that! Great pictures!

I love weeping willows. Also, I"m always reminded of an episode of Bewitched where a curse backfired and Sam wept everytime the wind blew through the leaves of the weeping willow. :-)
