I had a fun day walking through Chinatown when I was there, especially through a "hidden" garden where I saw this lovely willow.
Somewhere on the internet I found that "The meaning of the willow tree varies across the world, but willow trees are often associated with death, femininity and healing." Quite the gamut!
To see the original photo of this scene, and others from my wanderings in Vancouver's Chinatown, please do take a peek into my Décolleté blog. For those of you who have arrived here from there, enjoy the warmed cup of tea or sake that I promised you--you've earned it!
