Green Tunnel

What do you do when the curtain of trailing leaves from your willow tree grows out over the sidewalk? Rather than cut back the entire tree, you can give it a "haircut" and shape it into a green tunnel. I like to linger for a minute or two, enjoying the shade, listening to the soft rustle of the remaining chains of leaves as they sway in the breeze. It feels safe and magical and a few degrees cooler.
