Looking good, Bill. But what's with that 'unnatural' looking deadwood?

Hi Reiner,regarding the deadwood the trunk is completely hollow,I think I may have used too much lime sulphur on it so I am going to let it dirty up a bit, thanks for your comments.

Hi, Bill:

Was the trunk hollow to start with?

For The Hobbit fans, this tree is appropriately sinister. Where's Tom Bombadill when you need him?

I like it, but I would try to tone down the lime sulfur whiteness a bit. A gray is more appropriate for an old willow.

How large is it?
