Swindon Winter Image - Free Larch
In February of this year I visited the Swindon Winter Image Show with my friend, Robert Penney - leaving home bright and early (05:30AM) and arriving to be first through the door. After dashing around the trade stalls, we went back to Rob's car to drop off our purchases, and upon re-entering the building, we were greeted by a box full of trees below a sign which read "free trees - please help yourself". I noticed a Larch which caught my eye, and not being one to look a gift horse in the mouth or let pride stand in my way, I happily took it home - styling it the very next day.
