Found this in the garden when I went out this morning. It appeared overnight and is made from hair from my horse's mane and mud. I left it alone even though it's in a very exposed position by the front gate.

When they cut my poor Ash tree down they did the Willow in the back garden as well. I have been trying to get them to do something about it for almost as long as they have been trying to do the Ash tree as it was shading half the garden and interfering with the telephone lines. Finally they agreed to do it and it was a good job they did as it was going rotten inside. The children climb in it in the summer when they think I'm not looking, just imagine if it had fallen on them .

This was my Ash tree last week.
Now my garden has a big gaping emptiness in the corner and a lot of homeless birds. My house is depressing as the light is harsh and unfiltered whereas before it played through the leaves and made moving shadows on the walls. It is also un protected from the weather and feels vulnerable.
I will no longer be able to sit in bed on a Sunday morning with my cup of tea watching the birds flit amongst the branches. Instead the sun will shine straight into my eyes and dazzle me.
But it's alright. .....my neighbours are happy!
Has anyone got any ideas how I can put the magic back in the garden? ?At the moment I am feeling rather dispirited.
