Bay Tree House
These two bay trees arrived today. They are a Christmas present that I didn't get round to ordering before Christmas Eve, hence their late arrival. I need to organise pots, but they look quite sweet with the hessian and gingham ribbon for the moment, don't they?
Our house is actually officially Bay Tree House, but when we moved here 18 months ago we didn't have any bay trees (couldn't afford them!) and so we took the sign down as we thought it looked a bit odd. But now we have the trees I am regretting taking the sign down.
It wasn't a great sign to be honest, one of those cast iron ones that everyone had in the 80's. But perhaps one in slate...........? Yikes, just checked the price of those. We will stay as plain old No.9! Who wants a house with a name anyhow?
As you can see the front door needs painting, I am thinking of a heritage pale green colour. I also want to change the knocker and letterbox to silver.
And in case anyone is interested the trees were purchased from here.
