I've always loved willow trees. My great grandmother had a weeping willow tree in her yard. I think that's where my affinity for willows sprouted (sorry, I couldn't resist).
When I started dating my husband, I noticed another type of willow tree in his yard: a corkscrew willow. I had never seen such a tree before and was taken with it. I love the way the leaves curl and furl.
My husband's tree started as a sprout from his grandfather's tree, which makes it all the more special.
