The other day while the kids and I were outside sledding and goofing around (to give Kathleen a bit of a break), Abigail wanted to take a walk through the woods. We happened upon an interesting cluster of trees and she wanted to know what they were. I am happy to say that I actually knew what they were. Diamond Willow. There is probably some weird latin name for it but I don't know that much. What I do know is that this is the largest one I have ever seen. Once the bark is peeled and the wood carved some of the diamonds could be cleaned up to look very nice. If I was feeling adventurous I might harvest it for a nice table or bed frame. Instead it will get the opportunity to grow even bigger. Then who knows what we could create out of it.
