W is for Willow
Some corkscrew (contorted) willow that we grew and which I decorate at Christmas and Easter.
The Willow Man - a willow statue which stands in a field beside the M5 motorway near Bridgwater in Somerset. It is 12 metres high. I have never been quick enough to get a photo so this in one from the internet.
This fuschia is called "Willow Tinsdale" and is named for my grand-daughter. Yes really! Her maternal grandfather has established a new variety which, after many trials, was accepted two years ago and is now for sale this year for the first time. This is a photo of my plant (along with some lobelia) which was given to me when it first went for trials.
This next is a picture from the internet
and here is the young lady herself who will be 7 years old on Saturday. My grand-daughter Willow
Happy birthday Willow
