Home Again, Home Again

I'm back home in the country for the weekend. It is lovely. I enjoy cities but I am a country bumpkin at heart. Maybe that is why I am so attracted to these Yunus & Eliza leaf brooches. 'Favourite tree' is a difficult contest but I think oaks might be a winner. One of them anyway. We have a lot of history. Does it make me a nerd that I have a mental 'favourite tree' competition? Nah, it clearly makes me awesome!

Horse chestnuts are pretty great too. So green and springy.

And whitebeams...

And gnarly apple trees...

  1. You are awesome! I'm a fan of the birch tree myself; they're just there with their different coloured bark, completely owning it.:) xx

  2. they are wicked yeah, and it does make you awesome

  3. I think it's got to be the weeping willow because they look so delicate but are in fact really tough. B x

  4. I lurve the second one. I think I'm kinda countryish at heart- can't wait to move away from the big smoke and hear a few cockerels in the morning.. x

  5. Having a favourite tree definitely makes you awesome. Mine is the MASSIVE pine outside the Natural History museum here- it's incredible!

  6. These are gorgeous! I love the oak leaf especially.
