The Willows

Rather unoriginally, we called our house The Willows. According to the Halifax house names survey it is the tenth most popular house name in England. At least we have willow trees in the garden – I suspect a good number of those houses called The Willows don’t actually have any willow trees.

The big weeping willow was there when we came and one of our first acts was to plant this second one which, after a slow start, has begun to grow rapidly.

We also have a spiral willow in the back garden along with a dozen or so willow cuttings that are growing so quickly they will have to be re-sited soon.

To see more about my garden see the Pensby et al blog.
