I've got one of those in my yard. Wish I had the water for it, however. It's nearly dead and the trumpet vine I planted on its base is nearly taken over.

My neighbor had one of those. And then there was an ice storm.

Salix babylonica or Weeping Willow (also known as Peking or Babylon Willow). Lovely looking tree but a real weed in Oz infesting creek and river banks all over the south east of the continent, choking out native vegetation and habitat.

Nice picture though. Reminds me of Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, a truly astonishing constructed landscape from the 1880s.
