i heart macro Sunday

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.

  1. A proper weeping willow has always been one tree I wished we had in our yard. Lack the room in our current residence. One day.
    Charming shots.

  2. Hi Tanya,
    There is just something about Willow trees. I love the look of the Weeping Willow too. Where I lived as a teen we had what the folks in Alabama call Bent Willows these Willows were used to make chairs.

  3. There are three willow tress in my neighborhood. I am sure they are all the same species. But, the way they are situated on the different properties, each was seems to emit its own personality. I love them, too!

  4. As young children we would play under the long sweeping branches...flying through the air as we held on to those branches and took our daring leap. One of my favorite wedding presents was a curly willow tree.

  5. Love them to, we have a view trees to ;)

  6. We had a weeping willow in our backyard in Illinois where I grew up, too - I loved that old tree and they're some of my favorite trees as well! Awesome macro shots!!

  7. I love your pictures! And the story behind ...
