The Walkway Willow Arches At Windsor Castle
A striking display has been unveiled outside Windsor Castle. The Daily Mail have published photographs of six spectacular willow arches that span across the driveway.
The arches are said to mark 60 years Queen's Coronation.
Each arch is said to represent a decade of the Queen on the throne. The willow is woven as a bridge over the walkway, perhaps showing bonds and bridges have been made with people too. With the Queen being Patron to 600 Charities this might be related too.
The weeping willow tree is symbolic, as a human being, many tears in private have been cried during Elizabeth's reign. Still waters run deep with her reserve.
While in recent years we have seen a frowning and serious Queen, the media have pictured her laughing too. Only the Queen knows her truth, even when she smiles.
The 30ft willow walkway is situated on the Long Walk leading to Windsor Castle in Berkshire. Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world.
'The RWRHS has worked with the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead on the project' - The joining together of working partnerships, is also a reminder of both sides of the path, joining people together too.
A floral tribute decorated with a beautiful display of 4,000 roses has also been installed on each side of the gates to the castle. Jesus fed 4000 hungry people, perhaps connected. Roses are the flowers of the Queen.
The display also features six crown designed planters placed on the ground outside Cambridge Gate. These are expected to remain in place until early October.
The project is supported by actress Anna Friel and celebrity gardener Alan Titchmarsh.
'The chairman of the Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society wrote to its patron - Queen Elizabeth II - to get permission for the project'
'Next idea: The society hopes to sell the arches and crowns following the dismantling of the display, and proceeds will go its legacy fund for young gardeners'
Artists are inspired and if there is a display that with being made to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II Coronation, personally I would see it stay there. Then again, the moving of the structure might symbolically represent moving on of people too.
The video description is: STROLL ALONG THE LONG WALK IN WINDSOR TOWARDS THE NEW CORONATION ARCH - Is a new Arch Coronation taking place, ending the war of the roses?
-arch has the meaning of “chief, leader, ruler,” used in the formation of compound words: monarch; matriarch, archbishop and archangel.
The Willow arch is surely beautiful in this walkway.
