Why?  It's just a willow that's been topped.

Topping really pisses trees off.  Hence the whomping...

Or rather than blaming grandma, perhaps blame the behavior that warranted the spanking...

If it actually warranted it......I still don't agree with some of the crap that went on back then. It was stuff like talking with your mouth full, or running in the house that brought on the welts.
If I had done something like...oh I don't know, set fire to grandpa's shorts, then yeah I wouldn't have argued with the punishment, lol.

That's not the willow's fault, though.

Blame grandma, not the tree.

True, it's not the willow's fault. That's just where my hate got channeled. :-D

The problem with willow trees and drain pipes is that willows (like sycamores, which favor river banks) need lots of water.  The roots will search out every water source they can.  My father-in-law had to cut down his willow tree as it sucked the neighbor's well dry.

My grandma had a weeping willow tree that always had ladybugs crawling all over it and black bugs that looked just like ladybugs, so we called them man bugs.

Thanks for the memory.
