Jeff cut down the last of the rather invasive, pond-water-sucking, twisted willow trees today. We hope that this is the last of it and that no more little ones will sprout on the pond edge. It took over 2 years to clean up the bank, where the trees did quite some damage. We actually really like willow trees – but only a safe distance away from the water. Last year, we planted a young weeping willow, which hopefully will grow into a graceful tree.
