Spindle at Cage Brook
Originally uploaded by Elen Sentier

Spindle Tree gets her name from the fact that her wood has been used for making spindles for spinning for a very long time, probably since humans discovered spinning and her strong wood.

She also has these beautiful pink flowers that open up to shoe brigth orange centres – an amazing counterpoint, pink and orange, that works beautifully.

We may have some spinning workshops at the cafe – keep watching here for news.
