A tree

This is one of my favorite trees in our neighborhood. It is a corkscrew willow and it grows in the sand at our local beach. I like to imagine it and other members of its family growing alongside various Hawthorns - joining forces to protect something very secret. And if I was a bird, this would be my nesting tree of choice.
And as a human, it's mere presence makes me smile and fires my imagination.


  1. my in-laws have several corkscrew willows and trim them each year. They bring me the trimmings to use to decorate-I LOVE them! they have such character.

  2. Oh how I love trees like that. And the possibilities with their fallen branches are just endless!
