Dutch landscape

Still milking that amazing day in Holland until the negatives from my Chicago trip come back :-)  Several people have asked me what the use was of pruning pollard willows. As you can see especially here, the result of the pruning is to encourage the growth of lateral branches which can be used to make baskets or fences.
