In July when we had such heavy rain and flooding I rushed down the lane to make sure that the tree hadn't suffered in the floods. Luckily it hadn't suffered much and I expect it has experienced many floods like this in it's lifetime.

The willow tree is on the top left of the picture, to the right in the distance is the village church.
I have taken the tree at dusk and the other morning I managed to capture it as the sun rose over the horizon.
Stinging nettles and Himalayan Balsam have grown around its feet and some branches are already bare of leaves.
If you would like to see other pictures of the willow there is a separate tab at the top of the page.
