Willow, weep for me
Willow, weep for me
These willow trees growing by the River Sowe in Longford Park, Coventry, are among the first deciduous trees in the area to come into leaf, and are seen here in late March. They are a 'weeping' cultivar, with their distinctive hanging twigs, of the willow Salix babylonica, which is native to China. The song 'Willow, weep for me' was written by Ann Ronell in 1932.
