Shadow Shot Sunday #69 Flamingo tree

Our dwarf Weeping Willow (Salix integra) 'Hakuro Nishki' (Flamingo Tree) is beautiful in all seasons. In the bright sunlight we briefly enjoyed today the shadows it cast were sharp. It's difficult to see the foliage which is green and cream and pink - it sounds rather garish but is actually very pretty. (Click on the photos to enlarge)
Thank you to Tracy at 'Hey Harriet' for introducing and hosting this entertaining meme.
