Red Roots

 
Today was the Manistee Book Expo, and after it was done I walked the Riverwalk. This was my most interesting find. Who knew that willows can have red roots?

I thought maybe I was being fooled by two trees growing close together, but I did find some other pictures on line of willows that had roots growing into water that were very red. These were really floating, wafting in and out with the gentle waves.

It was a gorgeous day. A little warm, but not unbearable.

I sold a few books, visited with a friend, took this walk. I didn't sleep well at all last night. Is it too early to go to bed?

I've never seen a tree with red roots like that. Usually if I have a night where I don't sleep well, if I don't keep busy or go to bed early, I fall asleep on the couch

Mulberry have bright orange roots. But this was new to me too.

I have seen those red roots while removing willows from our hay field.
