home grown - willow for basket making.

A fishing net, found while beach combing, makes a temporary fence around my willow - growing for making into baskets.  It seems to be doing the job - protecting the willow from the deer.

Orange twine and tin cans criss-cross protecting these willow - doing ok, no nibbles so far.

The willow in the photo below has been munched - nothing protecting it - but that's ok - I've learnt that this particular willow isn't that great for basket making - so sharing it with the wildlife.
