When I was younger owned a disc of wood taken from the thick branch of an old tree. It was engraved ‘Round Tuit’. It was designed to prevent procrastination and putting off the evil day. Creative avoidance is still a part of my routine and even today I find myself saying ‘I will do it when I get round to it!’.
The title is just an excuse to show a couple of tree photographs that have made me smile in the past. These pleached hornbeams at Harewood House need someone to regularly get round to trimming and pruning to keep them in good order.
The multi stems on this conifer could have made a large number of ’round tuits’ if they were sliced but I hope no one in this generation will feel the need to chop down this magnificent specimen.
A reminder to get on with some gardening but I will do it after a sit on this adult version or grown up ‘Round Tuit’.
