Weeping willows along the Bourne Eau, Lincolnshire.
Weeping willows along the Bourne Eau, Lincolnshire.
The weeping willow (Salix x Chrysocoma) is characteristic of our English landscape, especially near water where they can grow to heights of 65 feet and are among the first of our trees to herald spring because they start to sprout new leaves early in the New Year, a sign that winter is ending and better days are not far off. The mid-morning sun gives a golden tinge to the branches of this graceful specimen on the banks of the Bourne Eau behind Baldock's Mill, a waterway that once fed the mill race when it was grinding corn but today provides a habitat for ducks, moorhens and other wildlife but whatever the season, these slender and colourful branches can be seen cascading over the water and hanging like silken drapes gently brushing the surface.
