The tree that gave zero fucks

Nature notes

I love the attitude of this tree, spotted out on a dog walk in Oxford.

It’s continued on its way, regardless of metal fencing, and grown around it. Take that humankind, with your flimsy fences. There’s something beautiful in the little hint of just how easily nature would re-wild us if we let it. And a reminder that sometimes, the only way to deal with obstacles is to be patient and creative, and allow yourself to grow around them.





Worlds on the tops of fenceposts

Nature notes

Came across this little guy while out on a dog walk the other day.

I love the fact that there’s a whole little world in miniature on the top of an otherwise ordinary-looking fencepost.

A sweet little reminder to look a little closer each day. There are worlds within worlds all around us.
