[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is spring in Washington State and the willow trees that bound our community garden are greening up nicley. I am particulary drawn to this tree because of its enormous size and definable shapes. The sun hits it from the north in the early to mid day.

Hello Bob,
A beautiful tree that is captured with fine details!
The fresh green of spring is a very attractive colours, and the tree is well framed...

Willow trees are one of my favorite trees, I love the bright green of the new leaves in this one. Such a balanced almost symetrical look you've captured here. I love the light blue of the sky peeking through. I have a willow in my front yard I planted 21 years ago, it's just starting to look more like this one than the sapling it's been for far too long. I can finally sit under it in a lawn chair as I imagine you could this one too. Thank you for sharing this lovely tree!

Dear Bob,
I have never seen such beautiful tree & can well imagine that how beautiful this must be looking in toto in your neighborhood. Great specimen of 'His' creation & well captured. Cheers !

Hallo Bob
I looked at some of your images and came across this "Weeping Willow" posting. It took me back into my childhood. My eldest sister's boyfriend would come to visit and we would all go to the dam where they used to do some fishing. The dam was surrounded with these Willows. As child one does not really appreciate things like the beauty of nature as there where much more important things to do, like playing in the water or running around on the grass. When I saw this image it immediately refreshed my memory of those times and the beautiful lush green trees, just like this one of yours. I also remember they where plentyfull and supplied the most wonderful shadows.
Kind regards.
