Weeping willow

Claude_Monet_-_Weeping_Willow_(1918)

The weeping willow symbolizes beauty and melancholy and has long been associated with death and grief. The willow, tree of tears, tree of enchantment, intuition and dreams, tree of life, muse to poets and artists, rich in folklore and mythology, is a mysterious tree. With its flexible branches it inspires us to move with life’s experiences, rather than resist. To cope, to adapt, to grow and thrive in less than perfect conditions.
