wind in the willows

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Willows thrive near water sources, and these chartreuse beauties leaf out while clinging to the edge of a country stream. This area is being restored to native prairie and provides a quiet and idyllic scene. About a quarter mile to the south crews are tearing up the railroad crossing in advance of improvements for the commuter train from Chicago, which will extend into the area.

Nice ethereal feeling to this one! The willows look like they are coming alive.
