“All A Green Willow, Willow…


All a green willow, willow;

All a green willow is my garland.

From A ballad of the green willow  by John Heywood c.1497-1580 English Dramatist


The weeping willow on Much Wenlock’s Church Green is in spring cascade mode.

    1. Hello Annette. So lovely to hear from you. I found you in my spam file – on a chance visit there just now. It is indeed a wonderful green. You feel it ought to be possible to absorb it through one’s pores for some internal green washing-infusing.

  1. You know, you just reminded me that I haven’t seen a willow tree since we moved up here. Maybe they don’t grow this far north. They used to grow in New York — before they paved everything.
