Thought you'd been painting again Sheila! I love this, it's so simple and effective. It reminds me of Wallander...do you watch that at all? In the first series his father was working on a lot of paintings of trees, mostly Birch wood I think, and I've never forgotten those paintings. I just love trees!!!

Thanks very much Karen, Julia and Yorks. This was actually bought a few years ago, so we celebrate 44 years next week! I should have said that this is made of metal (sort of 3D) and is meant to represent winter trees.

Karen - sorry - I didn't answer your question: no, I haven't watched any Wallander (perhaps I should?), and I love trees too :))

Thank you Scottish and Grandma!

Congratulations Julia: where did you go on honeymoon? We went to Norway (Stavanger, then Hardangerfjord), but I've never met anyone else who's been there!

Happy anniversary for yesterday Sheila! I love your choice of gift to yourselves, very peaceful and calm, like much of the Wallander scenery, maybe not the story lines though Karen, you must love Scandinavia then Sheila?

25 Aug, 2012

 

Thank you very much Janey! Actually, we haven't been back to Scandinavia, though I would like to see Copenhagen and Stockholm's islands . . . we usually choose somewhere warmer for our hols!
