I love that they call these "starts".
This is a willow tree. The smallest of five, it has the most leaves. Willows are a magical plant that loves water, and so I have been eager to have some for planting this coming spring. When the wind blew a branch down off our willow I accepted it as timely delivery and put them in water. Interestingly when they sit in water they create what can be used as a rooting hormone for other starts. I've got some lilacs soaking now, and it remains to see if those will be successful or not.
C and I are moving towards our first year anniversary of our move to maine, so starting something now feels right..
