My mum's called Hazel and I've just arranged to go and see her for her birthday. Happy hazel day! Hazel's the ninth letter of the alphabet and here's today's 'natural calligraphy', a phrase someone used in a tweet about these, which I like, so I am stealing it!  Again, I've managed to use lots of the parts of the plants - green and autumnal leaves, nuts, catkins and twigs. I wonder if these are any use as tree identification guides?


  1. I don't know about total ID, but why not try Woodland Trust Scotland office at Shore Road, Perth. These are so beautiful, and unique. Perhaps they could suggest for educational purposes, incorporating creativity.

    1. Nice idea, thanks! Do you know who the right person at the Woodland Trust might be to approach?
