Catkins, roots and birch trees

 Catkins on my twisted hazel, I love this tree, it also has female flowers so I guess this one doesn't need help from another tree to produce nuts.

A small tapestry I've been weaving in front of the telly. I'm pleased with it very simple with roots of marran grass sewn into it.
I have been weaving as well as wandering round the garden, progress has been achieved. Two of the trees are nearly finished but I am having trouble with the branches, they are only attached to the main warp where they come off the trunk and at the moment look very flat. Thats why I'm not letting anybody see them at the moment, not until I've solved the problem.
Below some of the birch bark I've collected which I am hoping to incorporate into the main tree.
