My Mother's day gift. My favorite tree! A weeping willow. It is very very windy here in Pennsylvania so I'm not sure if we will be able to plant it today.

Just a heads up but Im prob to late dont plant willows anywhere close to the house foundation or pipes they have large roots and runners . also they are medicinal and make excellent rooting water https://deepgreenpermaculture.com/diy-instructions/home-made-plant-rooting-hormone-willow-water/

@cyndi We planted it out in the back yard. It has lots of room. I never knew about the medicinal properties! Thanks for the link.
