Last year I starting learning how to weave baskets with willow, I cut all the willow back so that I would have fresh willow for this year.
As chance would have it my dear friend Leen was holding a workshop yesterday, so we cut our willow the day before
and went off for a day together (what, an actual day off, together!!) and sat in the sun (miracle), I made a basket which I donated to a new friend
and Rick prepped willow, sharpened secateurs and made some new friends
and it was all very pleasant indeed.
