People are so accustomed to the little stumpy plants of weeping trees, as they are grafted on a few feet height of stems, fit for packing in a dealer's box, that they have no conception of what pretty objects they can be made by the judicious employment of art to get them up. The Weeping Beech, especially, offers many opportunities for garden skill. On the site of the old Parsons' grounds, at Flushing, is a Weeping Beech forty feet high, and the pendulous branches reach the ground. Openings resembling gothic arches have been cut in, and the effect is said to be very pleasing.
