    The Hardy Tree In the churchyard of St Pancras Old Church in London, hundreds of old gravestones circle an ash tree. In the 1860's an older part of the churchyard was designated to make way for a new railway line. Coffins were removed with care and reburied elsewhereSome of the headstones were placed in a circular pattern around a young ash tree in the churchyard. Over the decades the tree has, inevitably grown and parts of the headstones nearest the tree have disappeared in to its growth.

Two long tree roots embrace - two lovers entwined. Drawn by the embrace - yet unable to release one another. Growing together with passion that almost strangles - ultimately supports a stronger union. Both roots searching so deeply - they cross and twist and thread and bore and constrict. Veer apart and back together. A dance of life.

Sortof really excited for this year to be my first white christmas (if the weather cooperates!) ♥

I know most everyone these days dislikes winter, but for me it has always been the most magical time of the year. You can hear, see, smell, and taste more in the crisp winter air; also, I love coming inside from the cold to warm up.

St. Kevin's Kitchen ~ Glendalough, Wicklow, Ireland ~ is a nave-and-chancel church of the 12th century. It is named after St. Kevin, or Coemhghein in Irish, meaning "fair begotten" a descendant of one of the ruling families in Leinster.
