The wishing tree (almost Wordless Wednesday)
Having started to float along on the festive tide with my christmas garden post at the weekend, I took two toddlers to the zoo in Regent's Park yesterday to see the reindeer, as you do. Their day was made up when one of the reindeers obligingly turned his back and did a poo right near to where we were watching. Joy and laughter are very poo related in the life of a two year old.
My day, on the other hand, was complete when I detoured to see the hippopotamus and came across a giant decorated cedar tree. Its lower branches were covered with wishes and hopes, written on luggage labels and other tags, tied to the tree. It was a glorious sight and made for some lovely reading. If only they'd thought to use waterproof pens! The synchronicity of seeing this when I'd just written about creating a wishing tree was very thrilling, not to mention inspirational.
