Heartwood, Daffodil and Kalettes

20 Jan

I found this beautiful piece of work and thought I would share it with you. It made me think of the cutting down of so many of Sheffield’s trees last year.  The art work is as stunning as the poem, so full of detail and charm.

We don’t have swathes of daffodils, just one at a time for now and those are getting knocked down by the wind and rain. I brought the first one in.

Our Kalettes keep on giving! I cooked these in garlic butter and a splash of water. They grow like sprouts but are much more delicious!

    Heartwood is beautiful. Do you know why Sheffield’s trees were cut down?

      It seems that the Council tendered out the care of the trees and the private firm decided to cut down hundreds of them. There were huge protests in the streets and eventually the slaughter was stopped – for the moment.
