a-z archive: w! challenge (weeping willows)

Tuesday, June 5:  I couldn’t help but add another post for FrizzText’s W challenge this week.  I have always loved weeping willows and I fell in love with these beautiful trees bordering Houhai Lake in Beijing, China.

I wander around the lake.  It is so lovely, with a cool breeze sweeping the weeping willows on the lake’s edge, like soft woolen fringe on a Nordic sweater.  The lake is filled with dancing points of light, effervescent.

    • I wish I remembered it, but my memory is so bad. I mainly remember some weeping willows in my grandmother’s yard. How could I NOT remember: the perfect combination of weeping willow and swing?? I do remember, very fondly, Sandy Point, though! Especially the sleeping porch and water-skiing in the Potomac. Fondest of memories, Martha!! 🙂

      • The willow got blown over in a storm, so maybe it was before you used to come to Sandy Point with me. My memory of that long ago is a bit fuzzy too. I wish I had a picture of it.
