How to Recognise Different Types of Trees from Quite a Long Way Away

Number One. The Larch   The Christmas Tree


The Christmas tree. The Christmas tree.

David knocked this up for me from an old pallet we had in the garden (doesn't everyone have random old pallets lying around? No? Just us then?). 
Its just a 2:1 ratio triangle cut around the central strut thingy - I'm sure the central strut thingy has a proper name but I've no idea what - and then I stencilled a few simple snowflakes onto it. Ta Da! Almost instant Pinterest level Christmas loveliness.

Unique and pretty.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I knew it was going to be The Larch as soon as I saw the title of this post!

Your pallet tree looks lovely. We also have random pallets in the front garden, waiting to be turned into firewood in our case. We also have a shipping container but I think that's more a "just us" thing...

Perfect!
My DS collects random pallets from all manor places and turns them into free firewood for our open fire.

This is really brilliant, what a clever man to have around, my DH throws everything out, we had pallets in our garden shed which DH used as firewood :-(
