Is it cheating to feature a deciduous tree during its bare season? Maybe, but I do love this little weeping birch tree.
I’m not crazy about its placement right outside my studio window. Once it leafs out, it obscures much of my view of the rest of the garden. That might not be such a bad thing, as it cuts down on distractions.
Its most charming attribute just now is the way raindrops gather at the tips of the many branches, creating a sparkling umbrella. Is a second foliage meme overkill? Not in my foliage-frenzied opinion. If you are with me on this, be sure to click through to (My Garden of the Hesperides) to see what Christina and her gang have in store.
