Harry Potter A-Z

A Saturday post I have been doing to spread the Harry Potter love and to take us all on a trip down memory lane :).

W is for Whomping Willow
'The Whomping Willow is a very valuable, very violent species of magical plant. Whomping Willows attack anyone and anything that comes within range of its branches. A deciduous plant, its limbs function as arms and any damage to them must be treated in much the same way.'

  1. That tree is kind of scary! But I get why it was planted where is was.
    It's interesting it can be 'calmed' by pressing a knot in the bark. :)

  2. I love when we found out the story about why the Whomping Willow was planted, it's a great 'oh' moment in the books.


  3. That tree was intense but I loved learning about it...especially why that particular one was planted ♥ And then how Harry, Ron & Hermione figured it out and faced it to get to the Shrieking Shack!! JKR is so flippin' creative :D
