Very nice, I especially like windows and the battlements, as well as the willow tree and the plants slowly climbing the sides of the tower. The ivy on the wall sections is also a simple, but well done, solution.

Just imagining a castle with four such towers, a gatehouse, and a keep makes me want to visit it. I can see in my mind's eye stables, and kitchens, and smithies, and barracks *rambles on*. But back to the MOC at hand. I like how high the walls are, most castles I see around the 'net don't really have walls that are realistically high. The roof of the tower looks good, and I also like the brown tiles on the battlements. Your use of tiles instead of plates in some places breaks up the wall because of the groove (and this is a good thing
). The subtle use of dark grey really helps this tower, and the abundance of round bricks adds nice architechtural detail.
