I went with a friend to the botanic gardens on Sunday. It was a very sunny and stormy day. We wandered from space to space learning and remembering the names of various plants.
They have some lovely weeping willows. I love weeping willows all graceful and swaying with the wind. I love the way they bend down to touch the earth or other plants as if to give a gentle caress. I love the way they invite you in to their space as if to say "Please, join me. Sit under my branches and be still."
