Those That Weep



Willow weep for me
Willow weep for me
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
Listen to my plea
Hear me willow and weep for me
Jerome Kern / Otto Harbach

Each year, I like to post the Weeping Cherry trees in our neighborhood. This year, even with all the bad weather and snows in May, they turned out better than ever! Next post I will show you the baby ones and tell you their sad history, which would make anyone weep just like these trees.


"By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion. Upon the willows in the midst of it we hung our harps."   Psalm 137

They are amazing Ginny. Maybe these trees liked the bad weather.

I am going to be humming that song the rest of the evening. But that's okay since I really like it.

Have a great weekend!

I don't see many of those weeping cherries around here and I miss them--and I miss dogwood trees, especially the pink ones.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day surrounded by those you love and flowering trees!

Best,
Bonnie

they are just absolutely beautiful and magnificent. do they have cherries or are they just for beauty and us to enjoy... i like all trees that weep and hang down.. they don't grow in the tropics.

Gorgeous cascading blooms. Love seeing all the blooms this time of the year, but the pollen is so strong in East Texas right now. People are having major allergy problems.
Happy Mother's Day...

Thank you for the parade of trees! They are stunningly beautiful! I'm going to be humming, "By the Rivers of Babylon; where we sat down, there we wept when we remembered Zion!" Have a blessed Mother's Day!

Wow...you have managed to leave me breathless with all this beauty! And such a perfect biblical quote to go with it.

Beautiful Ginny.

I would love one of those in my yard! My poor cherry tree is 6 ft tall and not as wide. 3rd year lol... I water it, I fertilize it, I pray over it.... Someday....

I have always liked weeping willow trees, but we never had one. All of these are so pretty. I truly enjoyed seeing them. As to your question, the fellow is my BIL.

Chatty Crone said...

They weep with beauty though don;t they? Lovely. I have been worried about you haven't heard from you lately - is all okay? Hope you had a GREAT Mother's Day! sandie♥

George said...

Now that tune will be in my head for the rest of the day! We don't have many Weeping Cherry trees around here. Your photos are gorgeous.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

They are so pretty. I always wanted a weeping willow tree when I was a kid, to read books under.

Annie said...

Soooo gorgeous, Ginny. Worth the wait and much anticipated. Hope to see more.

PS...Ginny, you asked about how the Chuck Will's Widow got named. I read somewhere quite a while ago, it's the only bird that is named for its song. In the evening, you can hear their song---"Chu quill wi do".

You Tube may have something for you to listen to, I'm not sure.

Rose said...

I really love trees that weep and love the one in your header!

I hate for this glorious time of the year to end, thanks for capturing them in your beautiful photos Ginny!
