Picnic by the Canal with Ubiquitous Willow Trees, Philadelphia Flower Show 2017 - Part 8

Hi Dear Folk,

Can't you imagine yourself here.  Nice loaf of fresh bread, butter and a nice Dutch cheese, along with a good bottle of wine, oh yes!  A little boat mored nearby on the canal.  Your crocheted blanket or quilt to sit on. Sigh!

The ubiquitous willow trees.  I was amazed how authentic the bark looked on these trees.

They are amazing.

Can you read the story that goes along with the planting of the willow trees along the canals and why the Dutch did this, a most interesting history.  I enlarged this somewhat, so you can see the detail in the bark and read about the planting of willow trees.
