How old is this tree?

What is the oldest thing you own?

Hi all,

What a beautiful, sunny day to start the week. I was looking at the trees in Regent’s Park earlier and wondered how old some of them are.  The thicker the trunk the older they are. If you look inside a tree trunk (one that has fallen or been cut down) you can count the rings inside to work out their age. I wonder how old the tree in my photograph might be...

One of the oldest things I own is a giant, pink teddy bear that was given to me when I was born. It is a bit battered and the fur is not so fluffy but it still makes me smile! They still live at my mum and dad’s house. I also own a really old copy of the book ‘Little Women’ that belonged to my mum when she was a child!

What is the oldest thing you own?

Thinking of you all,

    Hi Rimona - I love that you are looking at all these blogs and commenting! Thank you :) That is a really good idea re the the beds! I never had bunk beds as a child but always wanted a four poster bed like the ones you sometimes see in fairy tales... do you know the ones I mean? I would like to be in a hammock on a beach today for a snooze! A beach with white sand and turquoise, clear water. Bliss! Take care x
