“We have nothing to fear and a great deal to learn from trees, that vigorous and pacific tribe which without stint produces strengthening essences for us, soothing balms and in whose company we spend many cool silent intimate hours.”

Marcel Proust

Willows are beautiful graceful trees and I saw these growing by the roadside in Thimpu..  Their drooping branches swayed in the breeze as if welcoming us to this wonderful country! They were a common species in most parts we visited and just watching them made my mind relax and calm. 

Willows belong to the  Salix genus of the Salicaceae family. They grow in moist soils and are dioecious (meaning male and female flowers are borne on separate plants). 

Have you seen these graceful trees in your city or in your travels?

I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove Bloghop. Do head over to see some wonderful trees from around the world. Better still, join in!

  1. That's a lovely shot on the go. Willows are usually seen up North. I am not sure if I have seen one in Bangalore.
    Thank you for joining, Archana! I hope to see you around again tomorrow.

  2. I find willows very graceful with their sweeping branches almost as if they are lazy and just resting for a bit
