Birthday Lunch, Oak Daisy and Fairy Circle

15 Sep

1. It’s L’s birthday next week and we took the family out for lunch to celebrate. Her choice of dessert was Chocolate Fudge Cake with Salted Caramel Ice-cream – with a candle!

2 T, a tree surgeon, found a beautiful piece of oak which he has sliced and made into a flower.

3. In T and L’s garden there are lots of mushrooms, almost a complete fairy circle which is delightful.

      Thank you! I love the way T saw the potential in a piece of wood, sliced it up and there was a flower – so beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always wondered what a fairy circle is – now I know. I had read the term many times, but never looked it up.

      It’s quite rare to see a complete one. This is the best I’ve seen in a long time. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Not sure. We talked about perhaps framing it to go on the wall but I think it should somehow be frame free so that the shape loses nothing of its beauty. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The oak flower is gorgeous and is such fun for the viewer; eye candy for a gardener.

      Yes it is! I would love it if T found another and would make me one! ๐Ÿ™‚
