On the first Tuesday of the month Wild Daffodil holds a linky party with her photo challenge. The theme for this month is Tree, I should be able to find a few images for this one as I love trees! It always amazes me when you think of the history an old tree has witnessed.
My first photo is of a miniature cherry tree I have in a pot in the garden, it always looks so delicate when it’s in flower, dainty little blooms! At the moment it’s leaves are just starting to turn to their autumn colours.
This is a little embroidery I did years ago of a bluebell wood, and I mean years ago – probably about 25 years!! It was a Rowandean kit, it’s nice to see they are still producing beautiful kits, I bought one at the Festival of Quilts!
I avoided the Christmas Tree photos, but I couldn’t resist this cake I made a couple of years ago. I have a book of Christmas cakes and every year my children chose which cake we would have, some were more successful than others and like this one have been repeated a few times. The trees are made with icing runouts, the fiddly bit is getting the central tree to stand up and stay together!
I love looking at trees, their shape, their texture, movement…so an arboretum is my idea of heaven! Thorp Perrow is a lovely arboretum near Bedale in the Yorkshire Dales. Whatever the time of year there is always something beautiful to see.
My Anderson Farm quilt had several trees on it, I think there are seven in total, including the big oak at the top.
