Recently I published a post about one tree, today I follow up with a post about two logs. Of course they are from Silver Birch trees, my favourite trees. When we have our log supply for the winter delivered the birch logs always look so colourful and full of textures. These two started getting more colourful and as the bark dried and peeled the textures got more interesting.

So I popped them down on the back lawn and took these shots. Please enjoy! You just have to like the curly bits! Look closely and you will find landscapes in miniature brought out by the bright sunlight.

OK, here’s a little challenge for you to start the new week. I photographed these two old gardening tools at Erdigg House and Gardens last week. I wonder how efficient they were, as I can certainly see me using them both in Old School Garden.

What do you think they were used for? Have you used them, or do you have them in your garden? Please leave me a comment!
