The council have taken all the low branches from our favorite tree, a beautiful slender young Alder. I was so saddened by this, but consoled by the lovely big chunks that have been accidentally left behind all over the park. And of course, there are still going to be plenty of cones that the tree generously drops just for our craft projects and decorations. ;) Heal well, lovely tree!
We found our Yule log, and best of all, it is a large offcut from OUR Alder. I couldn't be more pleased with it, and plenty of time for it to dry out nicely before the Solstice too.
Our finished weaving, with yarn, rovings, twigs, willow pieces and pampas grass! :)
