“Inhale and hold the evening in your lungs.”

I found myself realising how lucky we are that amidst the mud, closed roads, dust, construction traffic, endless noise and builders rubbish – on our doorstep we also have the most magnificent views and neighbours…

“I’m planting a tree to teach me to gather strength from my deepest roots.”
― Andrea Koehle Jones

I’m not cheating entirely, I do have a few photographs taken today! But yesterday we ventured down to the meadow to have a wander, sneeze a lot and plant Starsy’s Oak Tree. We had a ‘Day for a Star’ back in September last year a short while after she had died (for those new to the blog, Star was our fifteen year old (ish) black labrador). (She did have eyes, she just closed them for the photo!)


But one of her biggest fans had got an American Oak specially for her that we could plant down on the meadow in her memory. We’ll also get a plaque done soon too, for one of the handmade benches right where she used to love throwing herself into the lake.




So yesterday saw the planting of the Oak (finally) – admist a huge attack of hay fever! Hence why I couldn’t post the photographs when I got home. But here they are now – we also found a toad who seemed unperturbed that we were there. Buddy came too and watched with earnest, although to him Star is probably a distant memory now!
