On a walk with the dog this morning we came across a very old beech tree down by the river, quite near George Stephensons cottage. It is certainly over two hundred years old. There were lots of mast cases still on the branches, so I helped myself to a few and made this simple wreath. Some of the cases fell off as I was making it, but enough remain to make it look quite sweet.
Collected lots of other bits and bobs, including some nice holly.
