witchy trees & great friends

A quick trip to stay with Helene and Martin at Tixall (we were meant to be going first class on Virgin trains but it was the morning after the Cumbria rail crash so the line was closed). It poured with rain and we got drenched taking Monty for a walk at the canal. All the canal boats tied up on the towpath looked cozy with woodsmoke tumbling from their little chimneys. It was two days of fantastic food (thank you M & H) superb wine and champagne (more applause for M&H) and great company (all of us!)

Outside their house is a really spooky tree. It was standing immediately outside our bedroom window and looked like just the kind of skeletal tree that might harbour a witch in its gnarly trunk.
