Weeping Willow

A few of the trees are showing signs of life. The large weeping willow at the end of Elza Street is turning pale green.
The leaves are growing as well as the flowers or catkins. The weeping willow is native to the Euphrates region of the middle east and has little or no value except as an ornamental.
This tree was also quite spectacular after the ice storm in December.
