Photo a Day 84 - So green

Some more green from my garden.  I love the different shades of green we get and they blend so well together. And when we add a little white to the picture, the green come alive.

Sadly the willows have gone. I say sadly because although they are so pretty, they are also regarded as a pest along our creeks  and waterways, pushing out the native vegetation and creating problems with snags and traps when they lose branches into the waterways. Unfortnately as they get older, they become very susceptible to winds, especially up here in the hills. They look lovely here, but they started breaking and falling and in the end we decided to remove them all. We have planted native trees in their stead.

The arum lilies can also become a problem as they multiply rapidly in the right conditions, but they are so attractive like this.

  1. we have water willows around our pond. most of the older ones have snapped and fallen in the winds but we have a few younger ones sprouting up. the only bad thing is they pull a lot of water so in drought years, it makes the pond worse.

  2. The lilies are pretty though. Probably a good decision to lant native trees.

  3. I love willows, but just don't have a place for them.

  4. I love the look of the Weeping Willows and those Arums are gorgeous.

  5. Lovely shots, Liz. Those arums springing out of the lawn are awesome.
    Thanks for participating in the Friday Greens meme!
