Babylon weeping willow

Salix babylónica

11ish pm - 7/XI/2005

"The Willow is called Salix, and hath his name a saliendo, for that it quicklie groweth up, and soon becommeth a tree. Herewith do they in some countres trim up their parlours and dining roomes in sommer, and sticke fresh greene leaves thereof about their beds for coolness"
T.N., 1587
