This is the remnant of the willow that fell on our roof last year. It has filled out and provides shade in the morning.
We have been having strong winds and rain the last few days, blowing in off Lake Erie, stirring up the lake and whipping the trees near the shore.
Out willow looks like an inside out umbrella or a little bit like a palm tree.
The view is from the lake side to the forest across the road from the cottage.
We did have to tie the gazebo down.
