Thanks for coming by today.

I wish you could drop in for coffee or tea,
but since you can't let me tell you what
I have been up to.

I have been under the weather this
weekend and finally feeling better. 

Today I spent time with Picasa, downloading
and organizing photos.  Since I can't get a
new camera anytime soon I need
to learn to improve on what I have.

That darn light issue is always
a problem for me and everythings seems out of focus.  Oh, Well

Rooting Curly Willow 101

These few photos are a test to my patience. 

I love Curly Willow especially in fresh arrangements.
Even by itself it has a good look. I'm experimenting in rooting some. 

  It roots so easily, just keep it in fresh water for a couple of weeks and surprise, surprise - Roots.

So far I have two batches growing in containers.

Maybe by next year I won't have to buy any.

Oh, by the way did you notice the little watermark?
Like I said I am new at this and no I didn't realize it was going to be on all of the photos.

Good Night John Boy!


  1. I am glad you are feeling better!

    I would love to know how to put a watermark on photos. Is it easy?

    Stay well,

  2. Found you at Summer Porch.....Pleased to meet you. Welcome to blogland.



  3. So sorry to hear you've been under the weather but I'm glad you're on the mend. Where do you get your corkscrew willow? It looks fab!
    Take care,

  4. I love curly willow and you did a really creative job. Sorry to hear your feeling a little under the weather.
    All the best.
    Have a great weekend,
    Hugs Rosemary...X

  5. I didn't know you can grow curly willow just by putting branches in water or a pot. I have a ton of curly willow branches, maybe I will give it a try!! Thanks Kathy!

  6. I don't even know how to watermark my photos. So you are doing great!

  7. Hi, Just found you this morning at Cozy Little Cottage as we were both featured! You have some great creative ideas! A new follower.

  8. Found you from Cozy Little House. I am a fellow Alabamian just a little north from you. I love curly willow too and I just found out how fast it grows into a tree. In one year my sisters neighbor has a huge fat six foot bush now but it will soon be called a tree. They planted three stems!! Just three. I will try to make a picture for you soon and email it to you. I also recently saw one at a nursery that they said was four years old and it is a large tree. I have some rooted myself and am deciding where I can put it. Both of the trees I mentioned are in FULL SUN.

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love curly willow, too, and have mine rooting in water. I want to plant them in the yard, buy my husband thinks the root system will be intrusive and grow around our sprinkler pipes.


I always love hearing from you, please leave a comment.
